I think so, yes. That's a particular category of package which users
are likely to search for; having a group for it facilitates the search.

They do, but vim's "set modeline" option needs to be on, when the files
are opened, for those modelines to have any effect.

Vim's default is modeline on, except for root. Annoyingly, Debian and
its derivatives turn it off for everyone; I don't know if that Debian
