It is called scalable because you can scale the picture without loosing

Within Dia I don't know the method to scale a group or any other object.  I do know how to scale the grid and page setup, but not individual entities or groups of entities.  There is no tool called "Scale."
But you can also do what you wrote about - you can group any
objects also those already grouped and transform them with a transform
matrix - this includes scaling, stretching and such.
In Dia? How?

BTW - transforming grouped objects _is_ available in Inkscape.

Yes, as a matrix.  In GIMP you have the grid which you can grab and drag for a very useful analo input method.

Maybe this is also in Inkscape, but I haven't run into it yet.
