Thanks for the response. I might have a misunderstanding. I thought the
Group Name when I add a group in Restricted Groups can be anything as it is
just a name, "Member of this group" would be users in the domain I wanted to
add to Power Users, and "The group is a member of" would be Power Users,
which I could not find as there was no Power Users group built-in in DC.
According to your explanation, the correct way to do it is to give the Group
Name Power Users, "Members of this group" will be Authenticated Users, and
"This group is a member of" will be groups in AD.
Is this correct?

You 'found' incorrectly.
How did you research to 'find' that group policy could not do this?
Search using Google!
(How-to: http://www.google.com/intl/en/help/basics.html )
To use restricted groups:
- Open Active Directory Users and Computers.
- Browse to the OU that will contain the computer account objects
- Open "Properties"
- Select the Group Policy Tab
- Create a new Group Policy Object
- Edit the new object
- In the Group Policy MMC, browse to:
Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Restricted
- Right-Click and choose "Add Group"
- The group name you enter will be the group that is restricted ("Power
- Select the group and choose the allowed members. ("Authenticated Users")
I recommend against making all users power users. Too much power. Leave
them as users.
