Method 2 worked! Thanks!

Tried Method 1: result is that group stays the same (good!) but owner still changes (maybe OK) and permissions still change (not OK, because now it's read-only for the other group members and only writeable by the new owner.)

I haven't tried these yet but will soon; however I notice you mention in both methods "any new files". What's happening is that an existing file, with correct unix permissions (not ACLs though perhaps), gets its unix permissions and ownership changed when someone opens the file and then saves it. But +1 so far for the ideas.
