I just answered my own question with a little help from a related discussion that popped up when I posted this. The block on editing apparently applies to anything modified in iPhoto. But duplication to create a new Aperture version creates an editable image.

I haven't figured out why some images do that and other don't. But a solution is to right click an offending image and choose Duplicate Version. You'll get a 2nd copy that you can edit. You can then choose to keep or delete the one that won't edit as you see fit.

This is crazy. I have hudreds of images that I imported from iPhoto. Many fail to inherit the proper orientation (i.e., that were rotated in iPhoto, but for some reason fail to show properly in Aperture). Does this mean I have to manually duplicate everyone, rotate it, and then delete the original?
