I am not sure if this is a new idea... kinda doubt it. However. I have recently set up a multi-tap system for a friend using soda kegs and a single co2 system. I noticed an extreme lacking in the system when not all kegs were at the same pressure when the system was set up unpressurized. Is there a backflow designed for soda kegs or is there an idea that is being secretly held in back storage for such issues? He and I are beginning to design such a prevention system and was wondering if one already exsisted.

I would suggest check-valves. There are some made specifically for this purpose.

Check valves. You can purchase the quarter turn valves for your manifold with or without check valves. Most hardware stores sell the 1/4" valves in the air compressor accessory section, those don't have check valves.

Once my kegs are properly carbed, I turn off the pressure at the manifold by shutting off the valve. I leave everything connected, and just bump the pressure when the keg needs more CO2.

Good Luck...
