Lock down file permissions by file type

Is there any way to allow certain users to write .txt files to a directory but only allow read access on the .xls files. The users must be able to create files in the directory also:

User Group a folder1 - can ronly .xls and wr .txt and create new .txt
User Group b folder1 - can wr .xls and wr .txt and create box types of files

Only if you create subfolders per filetype, move the files in their respective folders, and apply the adequate permissions to these folders. (Unless you feel like editing the NTFS permissions for each file manually ...)
Inheritance can only be set per folder, not per file type.
