the user management currently doesn't for part of the JCR spec.
it's a jackrabbit specific extension due to the fact we at
Day have the need for user management.

as far as i understood: you want to cover access control functionality
with those 2 properties. is that correct? if this is the case i would
rather define a mixin. without having thought about it carefully that
would look more appropriate to me since the 2 properties are not 
intrinsic characteristics of a Group itself but [in JCR lingo] rather 
belong to an access control policy that may be applied or even be 
effective by default on a specific group node.

modification of those properties thus is from my point of view rather
a question of being allowed to manipulate the access control of the 
group node than of changing the groups properties or adding/removing
a member from the group...

but that's just my gut feeling without knowing the details behind your

hope it helps anyway
