It's not in the GIMP core, but I wrote a plugin for managing layers
called GFXLayers, which is part of the Graphics Muse Tools collection of
plugins.  Select a set of layers from a list, click on the Hide Selected
toggle and hit Apply.  You can Group them in the sense that their group
chain icon is set too.  But mostly this plugin is to allow more advanced
and interactive layer alignment than what the built in Align Visible
Layers provides.

This isn't exactly what you're after - you probably want to be able to
save the groupings and work with them at any time in the future.  This
plugin could probably be extended to do this by using a GIMP parasite or
some other feature.  I just haven't looked into that.

If you're interested, you can grab the source from the web site:
