What is the proper way to group hosts together under a common name?

GROUPCFG[wksgroup1] HOSTLIST=wks1,wks2,wks3
GROUPCFG[wksgroup2] HOSTLIST=wks4,wks5,wks6

Is this correct?  I would like to group computers so that I may setup 
standing reservations, group policies, etc without having to define 
nodes multiple times.

ie. Workstations dedicated to interactive jobs 7AM-7PM, after which any 
job can run.

SRCFG[interactive] CLASSLIST=interactive
SRCFG[interactive] HOSTLIST=wksgroup1,wksgroup2
SRCFG[interactive] STARTTIME=7:00:00 ENDTIME=19:00:00

Also, I would like to be able to assign certain groups (say engineering) 
higher priorities based on the host list groupings (say eng1,eng2). The 
idea is that multiple groups build up the infrastructure for all to 
benefit, but those groups get higher priority on equipment they bought.
