Layers groups are first an foremost the equivalent of parentheses for compositing operations (ie, all compositing is done within the group, then the group is composited with its siblings). You could want to rotate a layer across several groups.

By the way, let's not forget layer masks. They would often be selected with their layer, but separate selection will also have its uses.
