I think it is a good idea.

Currently all we have for group is:

   <group appearance="minimal"> => inline
   <group> => block

So we could use either

   <group appearance="compact"> => collapsible

or something like

   <group appearance="closed"> => collapsable, initially closed
   <group appearance="open"> => collapsable, initially open

Let's discuss at the call.
