[p4] Managing groups of users

in the development process we are using we need to, at the end of the
development cycle, lock down a branch and only let people update it when
they have been given leave to do so. I have accomplished this by removing
all write privileges from the branch and then grant write access to an
individual only when they need it. The system works quite well but I can see
a problem with scalability; when there are more and more development streams
to be locked down I will spend more and more of my time denying and granting
people access to update branches. It also places me, the super user, in the
critical path of an update.
Is there a better way to do this? If not is there a means to allow others to
give write access to a branch without giving them super user access?
