Cause this is how Windows does it.

That was my code.  It works based on the Windows documentation and 
behavior that I observed.  If you use domain local groups of a server in a 
mixed mode domain, I have no idea how the Winows clients accessing shares 
on that server will react.  My gut feelnig is that you will see some
unresolved SIDs, but I could be wrong.
