It's not something that I think should be encouraged.
But it is something that Stefan encourages.  And he
actively removes :group declarations that are not
strictly necessary.

As long as that is the practice, so that many defcustoms
and deffaces do not have :group (and that is increasingly
the case, for distributed Emacs code, at least), we should
document the behavior (IMHO).
