That'd be close.
Something tells me to add one level of indirection, though that may be
because I don't completely understand Grouper capabilities yet.
E.g. let's say I want to restrict ssh access to SIS servers to the set of
sysadmins. Somewhere in there I might want to model a group containing the
pool of servers which come and go over time, and another group of individuals
belonging to the sysadmin group, likewise who come and go.
Maybe the simple thing to do is forget the servers and simply push (CFEngine,
Puppet, ...) the "plussed" NIS group to /etc/password on subject servers with
making 'sysadmin' membership dynamic (say, Grouper-fed LDAP), and leave it at
that. Not pretty, but perhaps functional.
