This though crossed my mind as well though we have alot of exceptions and we would need to be very carefull if we went down this route.  I think our team would quickly veto this route.  Was king of wondering what the inustry standard was.  Though doing this via gpo would be a good exercise.  Can we simply Export the Policy, save it somewhere then simply import it.  Sorry for the the silly question.  I'll test this out.  Thanks *

Group Policy would work if you create Server OUs for each set of exceptions (hopefully you would only have a couple sets) and apply the GPOs to the Servers at the OU level.

This would be a very manageable approach that would be centrally managed and instantly documentable and the back-out strategy is very simple ... move the server out of the OU.
