The failure to save values is due to the way the UI uses the API. In
several places I use Group.getRemovableTypes - so I can exclude the base
type. This method requires you to be 'root':


I can change my code, but is there any reason why this method should be
restricted, so long as Group.deleteType has appropriate checks?

This might have been due to a misunderstanding between the two of us
when you requested this method. I (apparently) thought the desired
behavior was to show what group types the acting subject could remove
from a group rather than all types that could in theory be removed.
I probably did mean the types that the acting subject could remove - needed for the EditGroup page, however, some one with Admin for the Group should be able to remove a type even if they don`t have root privilege

Another use I have is when editing attributes. Here I guess I need a method `getCustomTypes`, which would return all types except base.

If you can make these changes `soon` I`ll update the UI to use them, otherwise I can work around them for the time being
