SharePoint 2010 Permissions Best Practices

We are using SharePoint 2010, which by default comes with the certain permission groups (Owners, Members, Visitors, Viewers, etc.). We have several subsites which correspond to our business units (Underwriting, Claims, Accounting, etc).

Is it best practice to use the standard permission groups, and change the people in those groups as they pertain to the sites, or should we create permission groups relative to the business units? For example Underwriting Owners, Underwriting Viewers, Accounting Owners, Accounting Viewers? Which is easier to maintain long-term?

I've always created a group that means something to me or another admin looking at it.  So the suggestion you made sounds good to me.  I've created some more granular control on our share point as well, for instance I have a security group in AD called "Intranet-BookPoolCars". Everybody can see the calendar, but only people in that AD group inherit the write to create entries.
