Comment (by sooskriszta):

 Innovator'd dilemma. Should we go after current audience or a bigger
 market out there.

 Does use of hierarchical groups by 1% of BuddyPress users mean it is not a
 much-needed function or does it mean that the plugin doesn't do what users
 want it to do? (no offense ddean..i don't mean it doesn't do what it's
 intended to do...subtle difference)

 I remember the days when WordPress was simply a *blogging* platform and
 didn't have hierarchical pages. Look at it now - since this became a core
 feature, a good proportion of people use WP as their CMS, including yours

 I truly believe that hierarchical groups with upwards/downwards
 propagation will open BuddyPress up for users and uses that are beyond its
 reach at the moment...
