I am thinking of hte case where an image may belong to a group which
represents an environment, and another group which represetns "web
servers" which may cross environments.
I may be wrong, but I believe we will provide an API for permitted
users to tag images specifically for 0 or more environments. In other
words I don't think we're likely to do environments with group records
unless we think there is a really good reason to do it that way.
