Idea: Mass Text Messaging

My crappy Verizon locked-down phone already allows multiple to
addresses.  It also allows assigning contacts to pre-assigned groups.
Sounds like you'd like the address book to allow arbitrary grouping
and the ability to address a message to a group.  Seems pretty simple.
 I'd suspect it could be integrated into the existing contacts/SMS
application pretty easily.
