Host groups can most definitely be used in service definitions. My
whole Nagios configuration revolves around them :)

The parameter you're looking for is "hostgroup_name". Unfortunately
it is not mentioned in the basic documentation (Ethan?), but it is
mentioned in the "Time saving tips" section.

See: http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/2_0/templatetricks.html#service
