 I disagree with your 80/20 comment, and without some sort of survey or
 data to back it up it sounds like conjecture. In fact, in a recent core
 mailing list wishlist request
 wishlist/) this same request was very well received: "This is a great
 suggestion.", "That sounds pretty cool.", and "+1 on groups".

 The problem with relying on plugins to fill this void that is that it
 allows WordPress to move in one direction which could cause the plugin to
 stop working and leave its users up the proverbial creek, or the
 developers could simply abandon it. Having groups as part of the core
 would ensure this couldn't happen. Adding such a feature would not
 interfere with the existing system nor take away from anything that
 WordPress currently offers. It only adds flexibility to the existing
 system, enabling greater collaboration.

 I respectfully ask you to leave this feature request open so that it can
 be discussed more fully.
