(<seatd-configuration>): [group] Change default value to "seat". * doc/guix.texi: Mention that users may need to become members of
"seat" group and update default value for group field.
Note, that your current patch adds a little asymmetry. Even if you configure seatd to use a group different from seat, a (now useless)
seat group will be created.

There are (at least) two possible fixes for this:
1. Disable configuration for the group altogether, marking the field as
2. Change the field into one that accepts a group. Also sanitize the field so that if a string such as "seat" is provided, it is turned into
a group.  Then make seatd-accounts return this group.
