 Thanks for the report.

 I agree that group invitations leave something to be desired in this
 respect. The basic motivations for the current system are:
 1. We show a checklist of available members, in addition to the
 autocomplete field. If we lift the friends-only restriction, the checklist
 will show all site members. On a large site (say, thousands of members)
 this slows the page down enormously, and can even cause timeouts.
 2. We don't want people to abuse group invitations by spamming all members
 on a site.

 There's an existing ticket for this issue #2062. Let's use that ticket for
 further discussion of the issue. In the meantime, the plugin Invite Anyone
 will lift the friends-only restriction. See also #5421 for more thoughts
 on clarifying this screen.

 As for your other idea, I like it, but the UX/workflow needs additional
 thought. What does the button say? What happens when you click it? Do you
 get a popup containing a list of all groups, or all groups that the
 clicking user belongs to? Etc. Let's continue discussion of this latter
 issue here in this ticket.
