Throttle locking the cruise control?

I'm wondering if it would be possible to lock the Throttle cable into a fixed posistion by adding a cut-out switch to the CC control lines??

1. Get up to speed and engage CC.
2. Flip switch and turn off signals to actuator.

My first guess would be to add a DPST toggle switch to Open the BRN/BLK & BRN/WHT (Inputs B and C) lines going to the CC Actuator (lower right side of pic).

If there is some kind of mechanical 'Hold' function in the actuator,
then it should lock up without any new control signals to enable it.???

Or, am I way off base??
Comments please.
