Allow programs to be part of a group but only grouped by program on taskbar
Allow only like-programs to be grouped in the taskbar. For example, in a group I have 4 Putty windows, an SFTP window, and a MySQL Tools window. By setting this group to "combine similar", the on the taskbar I'd see 3 buttons, one for the Putty windows, one for SFTP and one for MySQL Tools - but they are all grouped in one single WT group.
It could be optional per group, or a setting to a program as in - if this program is present in a group, apply to group.
It’s a reasonable request, let’s see what kind of votes it gathers
This should be a standard feature. Having multiple Notepad.exe tabbed is great ... but *not* when they show up as multiple taskbar items ... I was hoping this program could truly tabify applications.

I wish I could retitle this to:
Allow programs to be part of a group but only grouped by program on taskbar.
The problem is that when you have a mixed group, you have to remember what group application XYZ is in. Or, maybe have an "exclude app from taskbar grouping" checkbox.
