You may want do consider the extra 'powers' membership of specific groups
brings. For example, I've hardly revoked any group membership in the past
that serves to give commit access to a repository. Afterall, commit access
is usually hardly dangerous: impact is small and inappropriate ones are
easily reverted; and it usually helps everyone if someone can make a quick
fix for something they ran into because they still have access.
So I would advise to only make an effort to 'clean up' groups that have
sufficiently 'dangerous' consequences attached to them.
