This part is a bit weak :-)  The work "Main" sort of reminds me of 
"primary", as in this is the "primary" group, i.e. the "main" group of 
this site.

But this part is not so bad. As long as the administrator can *change* the
name, it doesn't matter that much what the initial name is. It might even
be as you say, and we should encourage the administrator to come up with a
suitable group name, by giving a *really* *bad* initial name ;-)
