GNU chmod suggestion?

Would it make any sense to add support for flags called something like "+R" and "+W" that act a little like "+X"? I frequently find myself needing to set make files writable by a group. However, sometimes some of the files are not meant to be writable even by the owner. Therefore, something like chmod -R g+W foo would make all files that are already writable by the user or world writable by group.
