A standard use case is for a team to want to be notified on changes to a page.
Adding or removing members form the group makes more sense than adding and removing individuals from the watch list for all pages owned by the team.
I'm sorry, I was not very clear in my answer. My point is that watching is designed for the individuals - it lets a person choose what they want to watch. Most places that let people add watchers quickly find that the value disappears. I want to watch what I choose to watch. I don't want emails just because someone else thinks I ought to watch it. There's a strong argument for removing ANY ability to add watchers other than by (explicit, clear and simple) rules or being the person clicking "watch". Groups would make over-enthusiastic (And hence counterproductive) drive-by watching even worse and even more likely to be simply filtered and ignored by users.
