Why not using application roles, activate the application roles from within
the applications, only apply permissions to the application role.

Dba's will still be able to access the data, offcourse permissions need to
be set on the corresponding objects, no matter if it is a stored procedure
that needs execute permission or a table that needs select permissions.
