create such a group for only anonymous users?
I don't believe this is possible to do with a group, but starting in
1.16 you can do it with individual rights.
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['anonuser'] = true;
$wgRevokePermissions['user']['anonuser'] = true;
would give only anonymous users the 'anonuser' right
however $wgRevokePermissions is a new feature and only available in 1.16
and SVN trunk.
