You have another option.

If you put all the user in a group, make appropriate changes to the
directory and smb.conf all the files will be "owned" but still editable by
anyone.  This will give a level of accountability since you can see who made
which file.  We use this scenario locally with much success.

http://www.udel.edu/topics/os/unix/general/groupsharing.html  *permission
changes for unix sharing of the directory, for samba sharing the directory
just needs to be owned by root:group and at least rwxrwx---.

Example [share] - from my own configs

        path = /network/rit/lab/ritstaff
        force group = ritstaff
        read only = No
        block size = 8192 # large share (eg >500g) OS X compatibility
        create mask = 0770
        directory mask = 0770
        valid users = @ritstaff  # very important
