I'm not sure if your directing this to me but one reason I wouldn't setup sudo for a task like this is usually when it comes to using web editing for your server, I prefer the setup your own user and group that has ownership over these files. Though you could setup sudo, but why bother if you have a user who already has these privileges to edit the content on the webserver.
Like my webserver, I have my own specific user and group they belong to for access to edit the content of my site. This way it doesn't mess with sudo and any extra steps to do simple tasks, etc.
I setup sudo when I want to give a user access to commands that maybe only root has, but not wanting to give out root access.. etc.
