Group security should provide an option to prevent security settings

We have different teams working on the same projects: some files should be readable and modifiable by anybody, some others should be accessed only by special security group members. Very often group managers wrongly set security permissions to files which should be accessible to everybody and the owner of those files cannot prevent it because there is no way to declare and set the fact that object must stay open to everyone. An object option should be provided to allow to define the fact only users belonging to a defined security group are enabled to set permissions to the relevant object
