SQL Server 2005 Standard

When creating a EVENT NOTIFICATION, server-level scoped, it assumes the owner of the creator. This has proved to be a problem for the following reason.

I work with a team of DBA's, we use an windows active directory group to gain access to our SQL instances. When one of the DBA's create a server-level EVENT NOTIFICATION the SQL Engine will add his/her specific AD (active directory) account with no permissions. This will override the AD group roles permission leaving us to drop the EVENT NOTIFICATION. To get around this we would need to login into the SQL instance with the SA account then create the EVENT NOTIFICATION. Is there a better way to handle this?
