I am concerned about how to explain and present it clearly. I also think getting the implementation right would be tricky.
I may be going off on a tangent, but thought I should toss this in.  How about offering an annual membership to anyone that wants it, regardless of which groups they may be in or join.  Even different levels if it might someday be tied to additional features.  (Or a minimum charge to make sure the Stripe fees are covered and there's some income, but allow additional payment, for those existing owners that want to support the site without upgrading their group to Premium.)  Their account would store the expiration date, so that could be used when determining whether they would use a 'free slot' on any new group.  On Premium/Enterprise groups, it would keep the owner cost from increasing with 'extra' members unless they exceed the 'free slots'.

One thing I'm not clear on is whether this Paid User Proposal would be a per group fee or a per account fee.
