This is not currently possible in RQM.
There is a role's permission [Save Custom Attribute] but this permission seems to apply only to
[Manage Project Properties section] and it is almost useless going to the detailed permission such as Edit.
For any existing Custom Attribute, you can still edit and save the artifact with the attributes regardless what permissions are set in [Save Custom Attribute].

I am sure this is an interesting feature and many users may want it more or less. You may want to raise a RFE
