Disable writes over http

I'm sure that this has been asked before on the forum, but I couldn't find
an answer specifically for this one:

Is there any way at all to disable writes over http for elasticsearch? It's
very easy for people to accidentally create indexes that they didn't mean
to create.
If there is no way, I think this would be a GREAT option to add (something
like http.writes_enabled?) ... it seems to be the most basic access control
that would be useful for many use cases.

You can disable http entirely, that's it

You can filter out HTTP PUT (and DELETE) and get a pretty good approach to
not accidentally remove or overwrite anything (due to REST semantics)
