Actually, I think the goal is to provide a basic command set that can be
extended via scripts, not to create a special command for every variation.

For one thing, to implement such a feature requires creating some kind of
back-end meta data to support it, not to mentiont the ripple effect
through the API. I do not understand why a pre-commit hook script does
not meet your needs? It was designed for this purpose and has been
suggested to you on multiple occasions. I think the only built-in feature
you might see someday is when there are repository-based ACL's you might
be able to get the same effect via built-in permissions.
