Such group exists and the libraries we are talking about are in that
group.  The disagreement is whether it ought to be installed by default
or not, and the choice Fedora is making is not installing that group
by default, and you need to click one checkbox to change that.

As the majority of people don't need those and even for those that
need it the majority will use rpm where yum localinstall etc. can
handle the dependencies automatically, IMHO that's the right default choice.
