If one accepts that "id:*" can be the "default" user group, then the 
ability to manage groups is already built-in to AuthUser, as the
wiki admin can add groups to specific users easily enough.

It also shouldn't be too difficult for an auto-registration to add
new user account entries to the Site.AuthUser page, the format for
entries would be

    username: <encrypted_passwd> @default

which identifies a username, his/her password, and membership in
the @default group.
