Set Groups Profiles by Permission Sets too


It would be awesome if we could set Group Configuration Profiles by Permission Set along with Profile.   In a global roll-out,  one of the biggest hurdles and pain points is to have a new Salesforce Profile due to a ServiceMax setting difference in the business.   The administrative overhead can be significant in a global setting with 2-10 regional differences along with Role differences. (Could be a multiplier of 2-5 due to regional roles)

This may open the possibility to give true Temp or Hybrid roles which is a big deal, especially in Manufacture or long job type business models.

What is the underlying problem do you intend to solve with this idea?
Salesforce Profiles are laborsome to manage and if it is only to support a regional difference in, Default Pricebook, Timesheet, Mobile Download, This becomes very frustrating.
How is the problem being addressed today, if at all?
No true way around it that is scaleable. Have tried formulas and other differentiators but often run into major limits. (Wizard SOQL limit, Can't use dummy ocntract for other prices.

There are several customers that currently need to use permission sets to make the system work. This is an SFDC best practice vs having several hundred profiles in the system.
