Is it better ie more managable to have class membership setup in AD groups or sharepoint groups?

I think that either way is fine from a SLK perspective. You should know that when SLK enumerates AD group membership, it creates a sharepoint user for each group member, so regardless you'll end up with a number of users in sharepoint.

We've done more testing on sharepoint groups than on AD groups, so all else being equal, I guess I'd recommend sharepoint groups for that reason.
