Casting to immutable is the only way to create such a beast.  The best way  
to ensure as few bugs as possible is to create the object you wish to be  
immutable in a function, and cast at the end before returning.  This at  
least encapsulates the dirtiness in one function (which would probably be  
marked @trusted).

You can also use assumeUnique (which I'm guessing is there so it can be  
called in safeD?).
