For group controls you will find that it is. Try it. It's quite handy.
Another useful thing which I'm not sure is particularly visible (but is in the dictionary!) is the group 'clipsToRect' property.
When 'the clipsToRect' is set to true you get a group which acts like lockLocation is set, but is resizable. In this case the group's size is determined purely by the rect it has set, and not the union of the rectangles of its children.
This might have been mentioned somewhere else in this thread, but its probably worth repeating if so as a group with clipsToRect true, and a resizeControl handler makes a good base for a custom control.
