Comment (by schlessera):

 I looked into this issue in more detail, and I think it should be pretty
 straightforward to build a plugin that provides a frontend version of the
 "Add users" functionality you can find on the backend Groups
 administration screen. It should basically allow a group admin to provide
 one or more user names (or emails) and then just add them, without passing
 through invites or requests.

 Before I go ahead and code a plugin like this, is there any security or
 privacy implication that would make this a non-option?

 The groups are only used for management purposes and don't get any
 notifications, so I guess circumventing the invite should not be an issue.

 It would mean that a group admin can search through the entire list of
 user names and emails, instead of only those that are friends. Would this
 cause a problem?
