RACF Security and Catalog Backup queries

Hello All,
We are in process of implementing RACF security for DB2 V7. Everything looks okay except for backup of Catalogs and Directory.
For catalogs imagecopy, the user needs have to install sysopr/sysadm. we don't want to connect our OPC scheduler to these two groups as in that case security profiles would be bypassed. Nor do we want to use a surrogate user (USER=<install sysoper id> in the job card) to run catalog imagecopy jobs. Is there anyway to it to achieve this :
1. Would database profiles for DSNBD06,1 under MDSNDB help?
2. Would activation of DSNADM.SYSOPR help?

This only regular activity has become show-stopper. We have changeman setup with mulitple approvals to care of ad-hoc one-time activities (like upgrade) that needs install sysadm.

Thanks for all your replies in advance.
Thanks & Regards,
Deepak Gujaba Gaikwad
