Yes, no problem.

Yes, no problem - option for it.

> 3) Group composition

I believe that can be down using the umbrella function.  Seach the 
archives for more info on that.  

> 4) Accessibility policy
> Let's say I have created groups A,B and C
> As an admin I would like to be able to set the 3 following policies
> group A policy : only members of the group A are able to write to group A
> group B policy : only members of the group A are able to write to group B
> group C policy : anyone on the internet can write to group C

I think the only way is to have separate lists.  Someone else correct 
me if I am wrong.
