Is it possible to allow members having a particular role to replace component baseline alone (they must not be able to deliver change-sets)?

A central team is creating and maintaining Scripts for build execution on Stream Central_Scripts. Scripts must not change between projects.

Components of Central_Scripts stream is added to project streams so that they follow the same build mechanism. Change-set delivery restrictions is imposed on project streams so that no changes can be done to components of Central_Scripts stream.
These components are added by admins at the time of project stream Creation.

Problem noticed:
Whenever a new feature is added / bug fix is done on Central_Scripts stream, Project teams request the admin to replace the component with latest baseline as they can't do due to precondition in place. This is creating person dependency, we want to avoid this thus want to know if it is possible to restrict permissions to change component baselines only?

There are separate permissions for "deliver" and "replace component in stream".
Have you tried using these permissions, rather than deliver preconditions?

@Geoffrey Clemm: Thanks for the response.

We are aware of this feature but this doesn't suit our requirements.
The permissions defined for a role is common to all components in a stream but we want to enforce the restrictions on few shared components only.
