[Samba] Removed params 'force security mode' etc. What to use instead?

I noticed that the fix for bug 9190 (inc in samba 4.0) resulted in the
removal of the following config parameters:
force security mode
force directory security mode
I have a couple questions regarding this, and haven't really seen any
good info on it, so...
1) Why were they removed? There doesn't seems to be any explanation in
the bug notes or release notes. Maybe I'm missing something? (not
judging, just confused)
2) What can be used instead? I don't see any comparable settings in
samba to obtain the same effect (preventing clients from removing
certain security bits from existing files, ie group permissions)
I have a situation currently where it looks like I will need to
implement the above 'force' settings in my samba 3.x environment to deal
with some misbehaving OS X clients that insist on stripping group
permissions from files in certain situations. I'd rather not start using
settings that I know are removed in future versions, but I'm not sure of
a better way. Can anyone recommend the best way to deal with this?
