I expressed it the wrong way, I think.
I'm not arguing the fact that WORKGROUP <00> is correct.
I'm saying that the wins hook should be used to update dns, so it should
not fires for group names. 
I asked about this in the past and Andrew Tridgell said that "it won't
do group names".
So is WORKGROUP <00> something particular that is not
considered a group name?

If the wins hook behavior is right, then we need to set up a
wins-hook-script that filters these values in order not to update dns
