DelegateModel.groups is a list<DelegateModelGroup>, but there seems to be no way to add a group to it.
The DelegateModel.groups property resolves (in QtCreator) to an instance of a DelegateModelGroup (having .addGroup()) which applies to adding groups to *model items* and not groups it self.

When I console.log groups, I get:  {"0":{"objectName":"","count":8,"name":"items","includeByDefault":true},"1":{"objectName":"","count":0,"name":"persistedItems","includeByDefault":false}}

So I try: 
  var recipientGroup = recipientComponent.createObject(recipientComponent, {includeByDefault: false, name: number}) // (works)
  groups[groups.length] = recipientGroup; but it doesn't take.
Of I try to assign them all at once: groups = recipientModelGroups;
I get: Error: Cannot assign QList<QObject*> to QQmlListProperty<QQmlDelegateModelGroup>
