What do you mean by the word "user" here -- do you mean "author",
"administrator", "visitor", or ... ?

Presuming that you meant "author" above, this is already handled.
An author simply sets an edit password on a page (using ?action=attr),
and also sets the comment password to be '@nopass'. This will
restrict editing of the page to the author, while allowing anyone
to add comments to the page without needing a password.
