FD: I don't think I currently have any use
case, so I am not sure I have given any
fair thought to the implications either way,
but that said....

I (sort of) prefer the idea of using Channel Groups,
but I admit that whenever I have used Channel
Groups (not often, and certainly not at any recent
time) I managed to occasionally confuse myself
by forgetting I had selected a Channel Group for
display purposes and was missing something
I knew should be there.  Although overloading
an existing channel group (name) with multiple
meanings and implications seems like it will
annoy some of the people some of the time
(flexibility to select a new (fit for the purpose)
channel group name rather than just the
Favorites one might be needed?).
