Well, the main use case I see of target groups is about using them between
different build scripts, as also noted in the documentation Stefan just
wrote. So the "extension point" is more an extension point of the build
script, more than a extension point of a particular target.
So finally I quite like it.

"extension point" cannot make me not think about Eclipse's ones. In
Eclipse the extender is called the "extension", and the extended is called
the "extension point". So I am +1 for "extension-point" in replacement of
"target-group". And for the attribute on the target I would suggest
"extensionOf".
