The "ctrl+1..2..3" could still be an option for fast access to the rally flag, but to assign them that way will be a little harder and will have to wait for future updates.

And that's OK that player can't select more than one unit, you don't need that either when it comes to grouping.
Just select one target unit and click CTRL + 1, then select another creature and then CTRL + 1, now you have 2 units in group 1. Piece of cake.
To recognise which creature belongs to which group there could be for example a small indicator (number of group it belongs to) when hovering on creature.

So say I select Beer and Gold to track because I'm looking for a certain amount before I train up some Orcs. I would see small icons somewhere on the normal game screen like the creatures icons for both Beer and Gold with their quantity displayed.

That's cool idea. Many mmo games has mechanism of tracking items or killing monsters in their quest, but I prefer this from civilization game - I liked very much that I could set a goal for discovering new techs, so I could track easily which technology I need to discover to unlock my goal, so Mello and Rasmus - how about setting a goal for resource(s) that will track items?
This could work like this - resources that are your goal may or not may shown on the screen under the minimap (depending on settings player made for this to show or to not show this), when you reach this amount of resource(s) that was set as goal you'll get a message or icon of set resource(s) will start to glow.
