How about making it a libdiskfs option (assuming it is diskfs making this
decision)?  Linux has this option for mount:

       grpid or bsdgroups / nogrpid or sysvgroups
              These options define what group id a newly created file gets. 
              When grpid is set,  it  takes the group id of the directory in
              which it is created; otherwise (the default) it takes the fsgid
              of the  current process,  unless  the directory  has  the  setgid
              bit set, in which case it takes the gid from the parent directory,
              and also gets the setgid bit set  if  it  is a  directory itself.

I don't mind having the BSD behaviour as the default.
