I'd love an application that could help me manage query-defined groups
of contacts, also temporary ones. 

i think the membershipClass idea is potentially a powerful one.

An additional comment - dcterms:AgentClass is in my mind completely
disjoint from Agent. OTOH, a foaf:Group is also an Agent, so that makes
a third argument why the two classes are different.
