It's not obvious to me that the "Group: name" heading adds anything to the documentation. The name, in particular, is not used for anything; and the fact that the options are a group is obvious from the indentation and spacing.

Perhaps that line could be omitted altogether?

Or, it could just be: "Group: GROUPDESC"?
