I've been working on "Allow post options to not be reset"
(http://drupal.org/node/38451) for awhile now.
That patch currently adds a per-node-type setting which controls what
happens to the 5 publishing options (published, promoted, etc) when a
user who doesn't have permission to change those options edits a node.
The options are either reset to the defaults for the node type (the
current behavior) or are left unchanged.
There is some need for making this setting per-node, but I'm not sure if
the need is large enough to justify adding that setting to every node
editing screen (sure, it would be hidden by default, but it is still there).
I expect the awkwardness around this to go away when the revisions
system gets a bit more work and workflow is added to core (I think it
will happen). I have various (mostly unfinished) ideas for changing all
of the 5 publishing options. But those are larger changes that should
wait for 4.8.
