Note that a pre-commit hook can enforce this sort of thing. But that's

I don't think so; the issues relevant to this thread are nice and
contained (log message templates, rev-props on commit); what you're

While I understand that our operational model for file properties
doesn't quite meet your needs, your needs seem specific enough that they
are probably best met through custom UI development. We have to keep
our operational model simple enough that it's easily understood by all
