I am not involved in the process of populating permissions groups so I can only provide feedback from the space administration point of view.

Our firm uses ActiveDirectory groups which are coupled with Crowd.

Our Confluence spaces have three of such groups per space: viewers, editors and administrators.

To restrict access typically one sets permissions of the parent page to certain groups. Incidentally permissions are set on an individual level.

This set-up serves most use cases well. The only thing I miss as a space admin is to easily see who is in each permissions group. As a workaround I make a page in the "editors only" section of the space and insert a user group macro for each permissions group.
