Dealing with empty groups...

But, using a group as a building block for a more complex object, it
would be useful if there was a setting that allowed them to be accessed
like other objects. Also, empty groups shouldn't trap mouseclicks. The
suggested workarounds will work fine, of course - it is more just a
matter of convenience.

This is not quite correct - groups are controls. (Expressions like
"the name of control 3" treat groups as controls, for example.) But
they don't receive mouse messages directly.
I think this makes some conceptual sense - although it's confusing -
because groups aren't user-interface objects in and of themselves. As
containers for other objects, they're more abstract.
