I really don't want to do it but client requires as part of their security requirements.  So I should do it if I want to do business with them.  What would be the next group?  Power Users?
What can it do or cannot do?

There is no "Power User" group in Windows 7.  It is only there to maintain compatibility.

They are going to have "all or nothing".

Read through that thread.  Using GPO is the way to make it work.

My users are developers and engineers.  I like to have them some power privileges if not Admin rights.

Oh, it sounded like in your original post you didn't want to give them access. Then just make them local Admins.

The Power User group is just the same as the Users group now.

But that's what my client doesn't like.  Their main concern: User have administrative access to their workstations.

Ok,  I understand now.

You will need to set up Grou Policies for various levels of access.
