Permissions needed for Reparent Master Detail in Custom Objects

Salesforce Platform, Administration & Sharing

Under Point Threshold

The ability to allow reparenting of children in Master Detail objects was a welcome addition in Summer '12.  

However, it seems that you only have an ON/OFF setting for this and no control on who can do it. 

What is needed for a complete implementation is the ability to selectively enable that capability either by a Profie/PersissionSet/Role and/or a Record Type. 

In my use case, I would only want to allow certain groups of users to reparent certain detail records of a certain record type. 

The addition of the permission side of this would really round out this capability and make it enterprise strength.
