What about considering special rounds simply as a different country? I.e. "xx-yy" for country xx with category yy? 

Just a thought - that way you could simply reuse the existing tool.

There's no notion of author in the jury tool, so there's currently no
way to do the second request. The first request is interesting and
should be doable but I have to put other features in top priority
since the behavior you are requesting can be manually achieved right
now by monitoring the stats of each juror.

That is just another round of your contest, so you can always create a
new round and load it with a fixed set of images (like a plain text
file or a commons category), make it invitational, invite the set of
jurors you need, etc. The only drawback (or I don't know if this is a
drawback for you) is that you cannot run two rounds at the same time,
so it would be something you do after running the whole contest.
