In discussion at Council meetingi in Nov 2011, we agreed to explain that *Grp means "a group of * which functions as a single unit", whereas list* means "a bunch of * which happen to be listed together". Following review of existing status, we agreed that we should prefer listRelation to relationGrp, and listForest to forestGrp. For backwards compatibility, we retain the *Grp variant but deprecate it.

    Added listRelation at rev 9870, changed all references to "relationGrp" to refer to it, but did not remove either the definition of relationGrp or references to it for the moment. Likewise for forestGrp changed at rev 9871.
