parent group members to publicly viewable? I'm guessing no? So
there'd be two 'one way only changes' with archive visibility for
Well, I really don't like these one-way settings in the first place. I understand that members want some assurances, but I'm still in the "my group, my rules" camp, even on this issue. So I wouldn't have restrictions.

But that's a topic for another thread (I have ideas along the lines of saving the privacy of a message as per-message metadata - allowing the group moderator to change the setting without revealing messages posted under a more restrictive setting). Privacy of photos at Flickr is a per-photo adjustment, with a default applied at upload, so that's sort of my model.

That said, within your current scheme of things, yes. It would be consistent to have the one-way direction being from less restricted to more.
