FPC works from the agenda at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/GuidelinesTodo; there's just
one item currently on the agenda:

Phase out Buildroot -
  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Phase_out_buildroot_tag_%28draft%29

How about phasing out Group tag as well?

It seems like the Group tag is now optional in upstream RPM (since
somewhere around F-11).

Yes but there should be packaging guidelines adding a note that you can
just drop it similar to built root. Does apt, smart and synaptic support
comps though? do we care?

Smart in GUI-mode and Synaptic currently use the Group tag to, well, group the packages for viewing: http://laiskiainen.org/tmp/smartpm-groups.png. Apt (and smartpm in cli-mode) dont care.

Without spec specified Group they all get lumped under "Unspecified" but as the group tags are already wildly inconsistent, full of typos etc... dunno if it's such a big loss.
