alternative for user immutable flag on ZFS

I have some important files in my home directory and I want to make sure
that they are not changed/removed by my mistake.
So I'm looking for something that prevents all programs (like rm) from
changing these files even if I tell them to do so. But then on some rare
occasions I really need to modify them so there must be a way of
clearing these restrictions. And all that from my user account without
Normally I would set user immutable flag, which can be manually cleared
in case when I know what I'm doing. The problem is that I can't get them
to work on ZFS and it looks that it's not supported.
Are there any alternatives or different ways to achieve my goal? I'm
using FreeBSD 8.2-Release.
