If you set a default read only ACL on the directory and override it with a read/write on the file it might work. In general I discourage doing this - it's best to treat the contents of a directory as a single unit, and protect only directories - the interactions between files and directories aren't 100% obvious, plus it's just a much simpler way of organising files... you don't have to worry about having to set permissions when you add new ones.
