I can see your point, for although Group Policy is intended to *reduce* admin burden not increase it, you have to plan carefully how to implement Group Policy for it to work effectively. If you have different kinds of users in different OUs then you could link a new GPO to each OU, configure a quota setting appropriate for that kind of user, and mark it No Override. But if your users are lumped togehter into OUs by location instead of business function then there's no easy way of using GP to set quotas. Too bad also that quotas can only be set for users and not for global groups, it would make life easier for some setups...
