I'm a bit scared about your optional class being there all in the main namespace. I'd suggest putting in some "namespace kcgroups{}" or name it kcgoptional or something.

you have a few properties without NOTIFY, ideally you should either add it if they can change or mark them as CONSTANT if they can't.
