It's pretty clear Google doesn't care about Google Groups.  Or, at 
least, they don't care that it interacts badly with newsgroups, and in 
particular with bidirectional newsgroup/mailing-list gateways.

The purpose of Google Groups is to generate traffic to their site, which 
it does just fine.  Making it behave better with newsgroups won't change 
that, so there's no incentive for them to do so.
