Why can I remove a computer account from a group using the Web Console but cannot add one?

The removal of any account from a group is a groupMemberRemove operation, which displays a list of all current group members as per that group's Active Directory properties.  This allows the removal of any displayed account - including computer accounts - from the membership list.

When using the Web Console to add a member to a group, there are two workflows included for use.  They are Add a user to a group and Add a group to a group.  The Add a user to a group workflow makes a call to display only user accounts in the managed domain and Add a group to a group calls only domain global groups.  Because the Web Console does not have any management capabilities for computer accounts, no workflow or call was added to enumerate them in a list.  This structure was utilized to minimize the list enumeration time for Assistant Admins using the Web Console as one call to enumerate all elligible objects could be extensive.
