Grant a user authority to delete a virtual device

How can I grant a user authority to delete a virtual device (QPADEVxxxx)? I can either give them *ALLOBJ or add their login to the device object. Granting that *ALLOBJ is out of the question, and adding the authority to every single object is too tedious. What are my alternatives? I tried to add QTCP to one of the user groups, but the system won't allow me.
You could either give the user authority to each device description or you could write a program that is owned by a user that has sufficient authority to delete the device descriptions and have the program adopt. In the program I would do checking so the user is only allowed to delete the devices you want them to delete and nothing more.
