Yes, this is the part that can be done in the installer.  Stuff that is
not included in those sets and/or is installed afterwards with possibly
other tools that are not aware of installer groups would benefit from
something more, such as Enhances/Suggests.  I don't think this is a
blocker for the idea of splitting more in general where it makes sense,
though.
