The newly introduced requirement that groups and projects be assigned to a context is a step backwards.

Frankly, it is one of the reasons I switched from Toodledo to OmniFocus. As you understand, I now feel that this malignant feature is haunting me! :-)

I hope the OF developers will remove this feature or at least make it optional in the final release.

I don't see what the problem was with the original implementation. We all review our projects regularly, so upon completing all subtasks of a group/project, and during the next review at the latest, would always find out that a "childless" parent task exists, and we would cross it out as completed.

Quite clearly, OmniFocus is not a 100% GTD-compliant system anymore. I understand that there may be a user population who find this to be an improvement. Yet those of us who adhere to GTD as a system—some of us practitioners for years—this is a step backwards.
