How to SharePoint form library permissions based on form information

Hi Experts, I've built an InfoPath form that I published to a SharePoint forms library.  As part of my form I have a 'Status' drop box with the entries: Planned, In Progress, Complete, Canceled.  Based on the 'Status' value of the form I need to be able to set permissions as follows:
   Planned = Editable by everyone
   In Progress =  Editable by the assigned person (another field in the form) and by the admin - Read Only to everyone else
   Complete & Canceled = Editable by the admin - Read Only to everyone else

I know this is sort of like a work flow, but I don't have the option to develop a custom WF and promote it to the production server - I was hoping it might be possible to accomplish this through code on my form.
