I'm not sure there is a way to do what you are asking without using  
POSIX ACLS, which involves more than standard unix permissions.  
However, depending on what you are trying to ACCOMPLISH with this  
setup, you may be fine using sudoers for the domain admins and  
setting group and sticky bits on the folder.
Why exactly do you want permissions and folders set in this way? I  
ask because you may not need this exact setup, but you are thinking  
of how you'd do this in linux.
