Well, if you have, say, a wiki documenting PmWiki :-), and you have 15
blogs as well, you wouldn't want all those posts in the Main group...
But I think the PmWiki group mechanism is already good enough.
Especially as it it up to the admin to organize the wiki. I'd propose
that the default blog stuff should go to a Blog group, though, so that
new installation have a sane default setup.

I think it's a great idea! Especially since I can imagine new kinds of
blog setups that common blog software often does not support - such as
posting the same post to several blogs, or choosing between a "private"
blog and a work-related, shared blog. My blog entries in the shared blog
might still reside in "my" Group, for example (if that happens to be the
setup). Very flexible, and not confusing at all unless the admin makes
Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose
