2 part protection in Word 2007

Can you proctect a single word doc on two levels?  One level allowing users 
to fill in the forms fields only. Second level allow track changes to only a 
certain part of the document.  When the user fills in the form fields, track 
changes does not show it as a change but if a user makes any changes to a 
body of text, it tracks the changes.

Thank you for the wisdom!

No, Word's protection mechanisms aren't that selective. Besides, if
you're using a protected form, the user can't edit anywhere except in
the form fields unless they turn off protection.
