I am afraid this is probably terribly naive, but I wonder if it would not be better to have a magic UID - GID that when present, caused the VFS to ignore all permissions. Then the other part would be to create a way to format a disk so that when such a system was mounted, all new files would be created with the magic UID - GID. That way it would take a format action to create such a disk.
