Yes, that would work fine if all groups were on a card! ;-) As 
Wilhelm points out, it's possible to  use a loop to generate the 
names of all the top-level groups (including unplaced groups) and 
work from there, but it's not elegant and it's not fast. The way the 
backgroundNames and backgroundIDs used to work - generating a list of 
all groups, rather than a subset - was far simpler for applications 
where you need to run through all controls, or display a list of 
groups.
