How about creating a custom management page that just lists the
objects they need to change?  You could do this by hand if the
object list is static.  If, as is more likely, it changes, you
could create a Catalog that indexes meta_type or (if body_content
is not a specialized class) id, and thereby be able to pull up a
list of all body_content objects and list them on the custom
management page using dtml-in.  You can even use dtml-in batching
to keep the page size down if there are lots of these things.
