you as a group admin can do that, others cannot join
without creating a account at google (which requires
the acceptance of the google tos etc).

you also have censorship rights over others.

even if you add users to the list they cannot access
the archive through standard http or https, they need
to allow google to execute javascript code on their
machine. (so wget does not work).

and the url through which you visit a post is not a
reliable permanent link so linking to posts is hard.

i think google groups is not an acceptable forum for
discussing open standards publicly.
