i think the intention to have 2 different names for (almost) identical 
objects was to be able
to address backgrounds (groups with backgroundbeh. set to true) from 
everywhere
in a stack even if these groups are not on the card where the script is 
executed.

Try to think of bgs and groups, depending on the checked/ not checked 
properties.

Took years for me to get used to that ;-)
