If you want a user-meaningful groupremove, you need to track package
"origin"  (was its install explicitely required by the user, was it
installed through a specific group install, was it installed as part
of a multi-group install, what was its repo origin, etc)

Then you can implement all sort of smart groupremove strategies in yum
plugins (taking into account stuff like protectbase, etc), with one
hopefully emerging in a few years as the right heuristic to move into
yum itself.

At this stage I don't think we have enough data to judge the right
user-friendly strategy.
