There is no way to control access to a specific counter other than the
special counters that require "super" and the -f option to change like
"journal," and "change".
"Review" is a subset of "super." Everything is a subset of "super".
"Review" is higher than write but lower than admin and has some
capabilities of its own to support its purpose.
I think you'll need another mechanism. Why not an administrative depot
or section of your depot with the value in a file or as the name of a
file? You can control the permissions tightly on that.
