I suspect that this is a feature which is not yet implemented. It's one I also want, both in regard to this and in regard to grades on a scoring sheet. I'd describe it as a merge feature, where some data is updated, but not others.
Adding this feature to classlist.pm is a worthy effort if you have the time, but the quickest thing to do, without having to do too much checking, is to put in an option to disable the password update. Once that is done you can export the classlist, write a quick perl script hack to merge that classlist with the new registrar's list, then import the classlist back in to the database.
The other possibility, if you are using an sql database, is to write a script to plug section and recitation values directly into the database.
This is the best I can think of on short notice. Sorry there aren't quicker work arounds than this already available.
