Not really. Permissions are already different, only that sysophood gives 
all of them at once. You would only need to create one group per function.
So you could have some guys which can only block, others to edit the 
MediaWiki: namespace, others to delete pages, others to restore them, 
others to protect pages, others to rollback...
Can be a nightmare, but if you think it can help...

For example, i don't see why a "blocker" couldn't protect a page. 
Instead of going to a "protecter" to ask to protect the being vandalized 
page, he will block, as it's easier for him though not neccesary better.
