 I think that removing the checkboxes when the site gets to a certain size
 is probably (part of) the correct solution. Auto-complete on large sites
 still causes stress, but less so than rendering thousands of checkboxes.
 In any case, I'm not dismissing these solutions, just explaining the
 current state of affairs.

 We aim to build features that will cover 90% of use cases in their default
 configurations, and we try to avoid excessive UI for customizing these
 settings. You may be correct that it won't be a problem 90% of the time;
 that's a subject for discussion. Again, I wasn't dismissing, just
 explaining the things are currently.

 > I also want to point out that it is also not possible to invite members
 to a group from the members page. To me, it would seem intuitive to be
 able to do this.

 Yes. This was your other request in #5536. As I note there, there are many
 UX questions to discuss.
