I think you missed the main point.
Let we return to the description, to the original command. Additionally:
on the sender side the active user is: a_user:a_group
the ownership of sourcedir is: d_user:d_group
the permission: drwxr-xr-x

Please tell me what is the expected result, how will sourcedir on the receiver
side created (including permissions and ownership)?

I do not think it is weird to create that directory (if does not exist).
To handle it somehow if it was already created and the permissions are not set
properly (?) you can have the possibility to warn the user or do whatever you
want, but this is not the original case.

> If I'm copying a particular set of files, I don't want effects outside of the files I specify.

This is your case. My case is:
I want to sync hundreds of workspaces used by several users and I need all the
same permissions on both sides. Is this weird?
