Simple workflow issues

Hello,

I am playing with simple workflows in Alfresco Community 2.1, and have hit some issues. The scenario I have is:
I have two user groups A and B and three spaces: Draft, Approving and Approved. The (very simple) workflow I tried to configure is:

1. Group A posts a document do Draft (and possibly edit it many times until it is ready).
2. Group A selects a workflow action of an existing document in Draft and it is moved to Approving.
3. Group B selects a workflow action of an existing document in Approving and it is moved to Approved.
Restrictions:
4. Group A cannot directly post/remove documents to/from Approving or Approved.
5. Group B cannot directly post/remove documents to/from Draft, Approving or Approved.

The only way I found to satisfy 1 and 2 is to setup group A as "contributor" to both Draft and Approving. But that violates 4, because now A can post and remove documents to/from Approving. Similar problems arouse with group B.

Is there a way to implement this restrictions using simple workflow ?

Thanks,
Marcio.
