Try panels. It gives you a degree of control that, AFAIK, is
unmatched by other modules out there. With panels_everywhere you can
do whatever you want with the full page template.

No problem with panels. Define a set of layouts. Define stuff that
each group of users can add to a panel region. That's the way I would
approach that problem.
