Well, I will admit, I am no usability expert.  However, this feature is
what made GNOME appear easy to use to my mother.  My father loves it. 
It fits my style of working perfectly.  My wife found it cool.  I don't
know about others.

I think this is the right way to do it, because on a limited number of
windows, you may not want it to group, but it does allow you to have a
PREDICTABLE point before grouping.  Predictability I think is a major
part of usability.
