I agree that Assembly volumes provide the most robust implementation of 
what you are seeking.

The Assembly volumes are a 'virtual' volume, so they are allowed to 
overlap as much as you want - in fact the concept of overlap does not 
matter to them, because they dissolve when they are placed.

Of course, their constituents (the volumes which make up an assembly) 
must not overlap.
