I think a preference setting would be best here as this enables the admins that add groups to also add a new group to the registration form. And if this setting is empty no choices should be visible on the registration form. That would fly.

- Set REGISTRATIONGROUPTYPE = none
- If REGISTRATIONGROUPS below can be set to a comma separated list of Groups, to be shown on the registration topic. If it is unset, then Group change permissions will be used to create the list of groups a user can be added to (for guest driven registration the RegistrationAgent's permissions are used, for logged in user registration of someone else, that user's permissions are used).
