May I propose instantiating the ModelForm with request as kwarg in add_view, change_view in ModelAdmin class. This would allow the form, fields to be customized and validated on a per user basis.

-form = ModelForm(request.POST, request.FILES)
+form = ModelForm(request.POST, request.FILES, request=request)

Perhaps also the FormSet

This is a feature request. No way is it 1.0 material.

ModelAdmin.get_form() receives the request (and, for object-level change requests, also the object) and is expected to return a Form subclass to use, and overriding that is how you should do per-user or per-request form tweaks.
