There is no feature like this that I know of.

However, there is a feature that can block editing by a specific user.

A user should be a Moderator to be able to create temporary blocks on
other users.

The OSM foundation's Data Working Group is tasked to assign a
Moderator privileges.   There are no criteria at the moment.  I don't
know if there is a PH contributor who is a moderator.
