Not really convinced of that idea either. To me things that are closely tied
to chronographical information (e.g. most recent collaboration buddies) is
better kept in the Journal or indirectly the Home View (e.g. by making it
easy to resume an activity that you and three classmates started
in biology class last week).
IMHO the group/friends view's focus should be on making it easy to discover
what other people in your environment (class, school, region, partner-school
in neighbouring country -> neighborhood view) and people you care about for
one reason or another (friends, project-partners, etc. -> group view) are
