There's a reason this is not allowed. I don't think you would abuse it, but we have had others who did. I believe that is why the rule was put in place originally. I don't think we can selectively empower people to do that - but I might be wrong. If Varg sees this, he can respond.

The goal here is to stop people going back and changing threads after time has elapsed. It messes with people's memories and falsifies important (forum) history.

So I would say the best solution is post it right the first few times. I don't know at what point it's not editable.
