I think the only way an official G+ Community Group would be useful is 
if we simply used it as an isle for feedback; any other use and it is 
just fracturing even more which we don't need. I will talk with editors 
at the DocSprint today and see what they think we should do as far as 
feedback, I will make sure to bring this option up with them.

I am still not certain if this is entirely needed as this would somewhat mimic the Q&A feature already available on the website, but would in the same breadth bring in a lot more "foot traffic" as there are already numerous users who frequent Google+ on a regular basis and could thus contribute / ask questions.

But one problem would be that this would mean _another_ place to frequent and maintain. And we've had enough criticism about that already, with the properties we've already got. So it would maybe require some careful thinking.
