I've noticed that some of the .inf files that are used during
server/workstation builds and DC promotions have some very interesting
syntax (found in %windir%\inf).  I guess that this syntax is understood
by SECEDIT.  My question is whether the Group Policy CSE that reads the
GPTTmpl.inf can also understand this syntax?

Custom management of user rights using "ADD:" and "REMOVE:":
                [Privilege Rights]
                ;Add Whatever a DC should have by default.
                ;Remove Power Users from every right since it no longer
exists but may have been added.
                ;Remove Whatever *Default* Server Rights don't belong on
a DC
                ;If Server and DC Defaults are the same, then only power
users is removed
                ;If You remove Everyone, Remove Authenticated Users as
                SeAssignPrimaryTokenPrivilege = Add:, *S-1-5-19,
*S-1-5-20, Remove:, *S-1-5-32-547
                SeAuditPrivilege = Add:, *S-1-5-19, *S-1-5-20, Remove:,
                SeBackupPrivilege = Add:, *S-1-5-32-544, *S-1-5-32-551,
*S-1-5-32-549, Remove:, *S-1-5-32-547
                SeBatchLogonRight = Remove:, *S-1-5-32-547

Restricted Groups (use of variables in Group Names):
                ;   Restricted Groups
                [Group Membership]
                ;Accounts Created During Server Role are Maintained so
ignore groups.

                ;Operational Groups

                ;%SceInfBackupOp%__Members =
