Grouping tag in iTunes

I think iTunes 4.1 or 4.2 introduced a new tag/label for songs, named "Grouping". What kind of information is this for? It's not as clear as "Artist" or "Album".

    I think it's more a user defined tag. I've used it to organize the tracks I encoded from audiobooks that I don't want to have different information for the 'real' tags.

    watch out if you use it though--if you have "live updating" checked on a smart playlist that uses a grouping tag to find its music, youre screwed when you try to put it on you pod cause the software doesnt support grouping yet.
