I'd tend to agree with you here. Also; this being in the group_has_spare
imbalance type we have some guarantees that the group is not overutilized.

If we keep some threshold of 'sum_nr_running < group_weight / 2', then this
"naturally" puts a hard limit of 50% total group utilization (corner case
where all tasks are 100% util).
