Forgive me if this is something that already has been requested.
I thought having “Pasted As Group” would be a nice addition to the “Paste In Place” as it would prevent the copied entities sticking with other raw geometry. The pasted group would appear just as how it would after “Paste In Place”, but as a group. Then, it would be easier to move and explode if necessary.
This sometimes shows up in my workflow as I often have complex geometry that I need to move, but stuck with other entities which will be distorted if I just use move. Then I usually have to group the whole thing, with in “edit group”, “cut” the part I wish to move, come out of the group, paste in place, move as intended, cut again, paste in place within the group, explode.

For the under-the-hood function, the new group entity will just receive the same name system as “Make Group” feature (Group#XX)
I do the same thing, but [ctrl+g] makes a group and r-click option explodes it… and when it’s pasted, it remains selected so you can [ctrl+g] before the copy command or after the paste command. I also have [ctrl+shift+v] set to paste in place.
With shortcut keys, personally I don’t see any advantage in this.
