This is exactly a group in my would.
The problem is we have to many types of group.

PK Groups (which is more like a category)

Comp group (yum groups compiled from comnps xml file, yum install "Groups")

RPM Groups (Also a kind of category, not used very much)

My propocal is to call the current pk groups for categories and a call
the bundle for groups.
The groups could be mapped to the comps group or other kind of 
installable groups on other backend systems, or they could be remote 
groups there is some kind of xml describing that packages the contains.
