Maybe I misread your question and you want something else, but ...

My suggestion was to override the global passwords (from config.php)
in a page customization file (say Main.Test.php for page Main.Test).

If you have in local/config.php

  $DefaultPasswords['admin'] = crypt('secret');
  $DefaultPasswords['edit'] = crypt('secret');
  $DefaultPasswords['read'] = crypt('secret');

and you have in local/Main.Test.php

  $DefaultPasswords['edit'] = crypt('slightly_less_secret');
  $DefaultPasswords['read'] = crypt('slightly_less_secret');

then you can edit Main.Test (and only this page) with
'slightly_less_secret'. (Unless you have set group wide passwords in
Main.php -- in that case you have to use '$EnablePGCust = 0;' to
prevent the group customization to override your page customization.)

You are also able to edit Main.Test with 'secret' -- because you
didn't override the global admin password.

Best regards
