AFAIK this should be no problem. The group nobody is used for
server processes, which should have most limited rights in the
system. So, if a user, who have shell access to the server, is
additionally in this group, it should be okay.

You _could_ ask the system admin to write a program (script doesn't
work here), that changes the group. This program must be owned by
root, and must run with root permission (SUID-bit set). But IMHO,
this is a dirty trick.
