There is now a patch attached to
(Document CheckCanChangeField so sites can modify it for local needs)
which does what I've been suggesting. As well as changing the code, It 
includes a new section documenting how it works for the Bugzilla Guide. 
If people could have a look at what I've done and comment in the bug, 
that would be great.

Irrespective of whether we eventually have a more sophisticated 
implementation, I believe this is worth doing now.
