One good reason - backup!
Authored by: Krioni on Jan 17, '10 11:06:32PM

It is possible for the Address Book data files to become corrupt. Apple's instructions for recovering can cause you to have to recreate each Group from scratch. If someone used BOTH tags in the Notes field AND Groups, it would be possible to recreate those Groups easily without missing someone. In fact, I wrote an AppleScript that looks for tags in the Notes field and creates/updates Groups dynamically. You could also use Smart Groups, but my script knows to CREATE groups from the tags it finds.
