Maybe grouped references should "fall through", so if you have 3 <ref>s and 4 <ref group="foo">s and a simple <references /> (or now, none) you get 7 items in the reference list, maybe split somehow?

(reverting summary change - looks like something got cut off there James :/)

Sorry, name was meant to express the doubt about the way forward. :-)

Gadget850, what do you think of this idea?

One way would be to set "MediaWiki:Cite error group refs without references" to <references group=$1 />. But you would have to suppress "MediaWiki:Cite error" and the <strong class="error mw-ext-cite-error">.

"MediaWiki:Cite error group refs without references" has been modified on the test wiki.

Tthat's what I was asking about. We need to decide how to mark reference groups when we add them automatically.

Trying again, because doing a quick check before hitting 'Save Changes' is hard:

That's basically what will end up happening, but we still need to decide how to mark reference *groups* when we add them automatically. Your comment does not really address that.
