Restricting groups from sending e-mail to other select groups

As a Notes administrator, I would like to limit the use of a select group to a select set of people. We have groups set up that contain our entire workforce and I would like to limit who can use these groups to send mail to our everyone. Is there a way to secure or restrict these groups?
You can add a reader field to the group form, and then populate that field on those select groups. The group will only be available via the Address button for the authorized readers. There is a downside. You cannot prevent people who know the name of the group from using it. They can just type it and send. Also, you will need to incorporate this group design change everytime you upgrade your directory.
