Consider removing group_id as required for sub-group creation

Is it possible that this field requirement could be removed in favour of auto-incrementing identifiers? The combination of having to provide the identifier, along with the type being numeric, means that you need to store some sort of reference on the client side to avoid clashing identifiers in future creation.

Could this field become either auto-incrementing or a String type (e.g. UUID)? Either one removes the need to keep track of the identifier state in the clients.

Thanks,
Isaac
