Customer Account Groups / Required Fields for BPs using CVI - Best Practices

Hi Gurus,

I am on a project with the 1610 build of S/4 Hana. I have determined that it is possible to drive different required fields for customers by either:

  1. Creating a different BP role, this will allow for customizing in Cross-Application Components->SAP Business Partner->Business Partner->Basic Settings->Field Groupings->Configure Field Attributes per BP Role
  2. Creating a different BP Grouping will allow a mapping to a different Customer Account Group through Cross-Application Components->Master Data Synchronization->Customer/Vendor Integration->Business Partner Settings->Settings for Customer Integration->Field Assignment for Customer Integration->Assign Keys->Define Number Range Assignment for Direction BP to Customer. (As per note 2314109)

My question is, in the ECC system, we had different account groups for sold-to, ship-to, bill-to and payer. Now, it seems that there is no standard setup in the S/4 1610 build to differentiate between these partners as different account groups. What is the best practice for creating these different customers? Would it be to create new Z-BP Roles, new Z-Groupings? Or is there something else that I have not yet considered?

I just seems odd to me that SAP would not have something for this delivered standard in the system, so I think that I may be missing something.
