In SP2010 we have a document library containing an excel file. A number of users have contribute permissions on this library.

However, our users are now saying they want to restrict permissions. What they specifically want is one user who can edit, create and delete documents in the library whilst the remainder of users can edit the document but who are not able to create or delete documents.

The out-of-the-box permissions don't seem to offer this functionality. Is this possible at all?
