You mean like 'repoquery -l -g core' and have the queryformat work on that 
so it prints info about the actual packages, not just the names? Hmm, not 
possible at the moment, however there's no reason why it couldn't do 
that, just needs a bit of refactoring of the code to make it possible.

In the meanwhile you *can* get the information with "nested" queries, eg
repoquery --qf="%{name}-%{version}" `repoquery -l -g core`
