Can I allow some users to edit all fields, but restrict other users from being able to edit a specific field (i.e. the description)?
Even better, can I restrict users from being able to edit the description or a set of fields only while the issue is in certain workflow states?
On JIRA onDemand, you can do only a part of it. i.e. restricting editing of an issue at certain workflow states. But this would be restricting "Edit" for all fields and not just description or something else.
The best way to apply restrictions on a group of fields is to allow editing of those fields only via workflow actions.
