I asked a similar question earlier
As Adam says, since the directory allows visibility of all users, it
is a logical step to allow a similar view in the UI.

I suspect that you would have to adjust the ACIs in your directory
such that users could only see users in their own group. However, this
might cause issues with other processes which expect to see users
without any restrictions. I haven't had the chance to prove or
disprove this yet.
