Limit available project roles in projects?

It is common that one JIRA instance is used in several different contexts.
Each context having its own setup of projects, permissionschemes and roles.

Because the project roles list is global, it happens quite frequently that project administrators assign users/groups to inproper project roles. Project admins also get unsure of which roles to use.

I know that there is no function to to limit the roles for a project, but is it possible to do a "hack" for this?

Are there any improvements suggested for my need?

Ideally, it should be handled via process. You might have to do some kind of project admin training, specific to the projects they are involved with.

If you really want to hack into the behavior, it should be fairly easy to inject some javascript into the page that will hide the unwanted roles. The javascript will be looking for project ids, or any other metadata like category, to decide which roles to be removed from the page. This will add some maintenance effort for future JIRA upgrades.

Thanks for answer!
The process is actually quite good. Project admins are trained how to use the roles. Unfortunately they forget, roles changes, admins are replaced and so on.
