Well, you do not need ACLs for that, just 'chmod g+s <directory>' will do.
But in general, I agree, this is insane requirement as nobody would ever think of it in Windows. Not happy w/ a traditional Unix permissions? Go for ACLs.
The only pity is that the current Posix-draft hack widely used on all Linuxes 
is a mess and Rich-acl support is still nowhere in sight :-(

I think what you need are filesystem acls. With acls you can specify
that new files in a dir structure will have predefined default groups
so all members of that particular group will be able to modify the
