Sorry, if this is a stupid question from someone who isn't a developer:

What about if the underlaying filesystem is NTFS? I mean if I e. g. have my 
sysvol share on a NTFS formated partition on my s4 server. Wouldn't this be a 
way where a mapping to unix ACLs are needless?

With ntfs-3g utils I can get the IDs of files on my NTFS volume:
# ntfs-3g.secaudit -vv bootmgr | grep ':dec'
     O:dec S-1-5-80-956008885-3418522649-1831038044-1853292631-2271478464
     G:dec S-1-5-80-956008885-3418522649-1831038044-1853292631-2271478464
