Problems with group names in Reader fields

I have a Form with a Readers field, which is defined as editable so that document authors can define who can read their documents on the Web. The Readers field is filled using an address dialog, and can have multiple values. If readers are specified as individuals, all works fine; but if groups are specified as readers, the members of the group cannot see the document.

Should I expand any groups specified by the author into individual members in the input translation formula of the Readers field? If so, how would I do it, without looking up the whole groups column from the address book database? It's too big for DbColumn to work. Many thanks for any suggestions.

Put roles into the Reader fields, rather than group names. You can have a one-to-one matching of groups and roles if you want, or you can have more than one group share a role (or vice versa).
