comment Sorting in InfoPath
So, first off, my comment was only partially correct. I believe sorting in datasets was only added in InfoPath 2010, and I think it only works when forms are shown in the InfoPath client. That said, the default sorting when the access method is "SharePoint library or list" is by list item ID, and the only way to change this in InfoPath 2007 is to delete all the rows and re-add them in Datasheet view. When you access it by OWSSVR.dll, then the limits/sorting is based on the default view, as I stated above. So yes, it definitely can have an effect on InfoPath.

comment InfoPath Code broke when Office 365 went from 14 to 15 please, anyone, check my code
I have a dev 2013 environment set up, I might try to do this with one of my smaller forms just so I can see if it works. Watch this space.

comment Where do SharePoint Groups live?
Also, the "visibility" of a group in quick launch does not affect whether or not it can be used to apply security or otherwise be used in any subsite. You can make a SP group that doesn't show up in any group quick launch, and it still functions. Look at /_layouts/groups.aspx and you'll see all the SP groups for the entire site collection, no matter where you open /_layouts/groups.aspx from.

The scope of your question has changed somewhat from the original but I'll try to answer what you're after. Groups definitely live at the site collection level. The "visibility" of a SP group is separate and distinct from its usage in SP. You can make a SP group "visible" in any subsite in a site collection. Ex - Our prod root site has three groups that are shown in quick launch on every subsite. After that, the site-specific groups are also shown. There is no "naming convention" enforced by SP, only valid characters, so you can change the names on a whim.

I do not, because I haven't tried yet, but I had this exact problem going from 12 to 14 and this was how I solved it.

"content database where your web application or site collection is residing"

"but for the group itself it will take you to the root site always for administrative activity against that group" -> I thought you might mean that, so I just checked in my SP2010 environment, and it does not. Different in SP2013 perhaps?

To be precise - they live at the site collection level but you can still manage them from a subsite without having to open Site Collection Settings or navigate to the root site.

Groups can be managed from subsites. I'm not sure where you get the idea that they're not. What do you consider "managed"?

Well, the web application isn't really relevant to the discussion at hand, so that's what threw me off. Web applications aren't stored in content databases.
