Actually I think it is because unlike other objects, that one can create
with "create <object>", I would guess that people figured that you could
only get the benefits of the templateGroup by using "create group" - which
no one does (AFAIK), and I never do.

However after testing, it turns out that the templateGroup properties apply
to groups created by selecting existing objects and grouping them, so it has
more usefulness than I originally expected. Perhaps that's the same reason
everyone else has...
