Interesting idea - SGID etc wouldn't work so it would need permissions
of it's own and I'm not sure what security risks there could be, eg:
from malicious attempts to corrupt lost+found...

I find simplifications work best for answers to novices.  People who are
not novices know enough that they can make more informed choices and
know the implications of them, and novices get an answer that doesn't
require other 'presumed' knowledge.
