Would be helpful to be able to save a group of layers as a layer definition (.qlr) file so that the same group of layers can be added straight into a project once, rather than having to individually add the layers and then manually group them.

Such as Joe I consider this tool very useful and necessary.

"Layer menu > Embed Layers and Groups" already offers the possibility to add at once many layers that are used in another project (with the same symbology). The main problem I see with that is there is no way then to change layer style. Maybe, this feature should be improved to let users change style and disconnect layers from previous project.
Otherwise, there is also a plugin that almost do the same think, allowing modification of layers : ImportLayersFromProject.
