A group marker is a special kind of contribution item denoting the beginning of a group. These groups are used to structure the list of items. Unlike regular contribution items and separators, group markers have no visual representation. The name of the group is synonymous with the contribution item id.

This class may be instantiated; it is not intended to be subclassed outside the framework.
