Enlarging Measures

It would be helpful to me to be able to enlarge a measure anywhere in a score by placing a larger time signature in it. If for example, I need 5 beats in a measure instead of 4, I could place a 5/4 time signature in the measure and the notes in the measure to the right would not "move" into the measure I am trying to enlarge.
Select Option>Limit editing to one bar
Place the time signature of your choice in the measure of your choice and it would not affect the notes to the right in the next measure.  
Extra beats would appear as ghost rests if desired until the measure is full.
The "enlarged" measure can be changed to another "size" but the notes and or rests cannot exceed the value of the inserted time signature.   
(the change in time signatures would also affect the corresponding measures on the staves above or below)
It would be useful when working with fermatas and I need some "extra space" to write a fill.
I wouldn't have to insert an extra bar.
Best Regards,
