SDE in SQL Server and data owner permissions

We are moving from Oracle to SQL Server and have installed under the 'sde' schema, not dbo.  Following our security model, we have a data owner, data editors and data viewers.  The Data Owner called 'SDECREATOR' owns data in the geodatabase, and then assigned permissions as needed to editors and viewers.  


The data owner is a sql login and database user that has CONNECT, CREATE PROCEDURE, CREATE TABLE, CREATE VIEW.   The account owns data, but inside of SSMS, it can't see users to grant to, or see what grants have been given.  For example, the viewing account is SDEVIEW.  It can issue GRANT SELECT ON MYFC to SDEVIEW, and it works, but looking at properties doesn't show anything. 


I believe this to be related to now having the correct permissions.  If I had the role db_owner to SDECREATOR, it can see what it needs to.  However, since this role an do a lot more than own and manage data, I really don't want to do that. 


Is there another way around this?
