Well, that link has a description that says it all:

Who it is for
Slightly savvier users who want to add separate accounts for each person in 
their household.
Should be easy to create a new user with typical permissions.
Power users who are not quite at the sysadmin level and still prefer GUI tools 
to configuration files.
Should expose all advanced features

Now my question is, is Kubuntu targeting those users? Is that even a user 
group big enough to target to?

I have been developing all my software targeting the group of users less 
interested in computers, and I believe Plasma desktop should be developed 
using that group in mind and offering alternatives for advance users.

	-By default you receive files from bluetooth, nothing to configure.
	-If you are one of "those" users you can: change destination, activate 
"accept all from this device", share complete folders etc

In the case of user management would be:
	-User wants to create a new user, s/he can easily do it
	-Advance user wants to add groups because... Well because he wants, he 
installs kuser/userconfig or use the command line.

I want to know use cases for edit/create groups, if there are such I will be 
happy to implement support for it, if not I will make it so somebody can 
implement support for them easily and help him/her in the process.
