That new-in-6 feature only seems to work with a cell at the topmost 
level within a group.  For example, I have a notebook with the following 

   Input cell with a Plot expression
   Output cell from that Plot
   Text cell


Yes, if I double-click the text cell, the rest of the entire Section 
group collapses to that text cell.

However, suppose I want to collapse everything in that section except 
the Plot output.  I double-click the Plot output cell's bracket and the 
Input/Output pair collapses to just the output cell.

But now how could I collapse the entire section so that just the plot 
output cell shows?  If I double-click the output cell bracket, nothing 
happens; if I double-click the Plot Input/Output group bracket, then of 
course it just reopens the Plot Input cell again.

Am I missing something here?
