Well, rather than defining a manager for a product I was referring more generally to making it possible for a group (perhaps to be called 'Product maintainer') to be able to maintain all company products.


Agreed, but using the field "Product Manager" in the product iself will allow you do 2 kind of elements.

Type 1: (Segmented product editors)

1.- I can edit "only" product which I am responsible for, for example, products for expenses are generally managed by Accountant users.
2.- Products that require deeper nanalysis are not managed by accountants they are a mix between correct default values (in categoories) and ACL on product istelf (Produc Manager comes up again).
I don't understand the sentence in 2. 

I understand that the segmentation on products could occur on the following levels:
1) By product category
2) By product

And I think that restricting to 2) seems too much. At least in my experience with SAP, the restrictions are based on the types of products, not on individual products.

Type 2: (Super Product Administrators)

3.- Super Product Editors (these are the ones you are mentioning).

With your approach you will have a "All in all out" which in not wrong but is incomplete, at least we solved manually in that way.

Be care about 2 things.

1.- With website enabled, portal user will nee write access to write messages, test that also.
Will do. 
2.- You can "disable" some ACL to base groups which you mentioned, then you module with demo data should add "admin" as user to not brake some tests.
I was thinking to add,in the first iteration, not to remove the ACL for existing Manager roles. The change would be directed to extend the community of users that are allowed to maintain products, rather than limiting it to the 'Product Manager'.  

I hope it clearfy my points a little better.
