Is there a reason why using the set-group-id would be a problem?

This seems to be a problem from the lack of ACLs in Linux, which I'm
assuming is
your target platform.  What you need is more groups.  If you have a project
will have members which are subsets of one or several groups.  I'd just add
group for the specific project, and SGID the directories.


Yes, SGID helps in that way the user will always create the file owner-group
But it requires the whole bunch of different groups. It's the lack of ACL,
you're right.
