Understood --- I can probably set SeBackupPrivilege /
SeRestorePrivilege as 'RequiredPriveleges' for the services that
depend on the system account having access via the ACLs.  Not being
used quite in the spirit of those privileges (i.e. for
backup/restore), but doable.  We'll also have to revise our
permissions model on our network filers since before running 'chmod
700' on a file wouldn't blow away our various administrative groups.

Like I said originally, just wanted to verify it was desired behavior
and it sounds like it is.  Thanks!
