Hostgroup selection box does not honor create_hosts filter
When creating a new host, the hostgroup selection box shows all host groups (belonging to a organization) no matter what limitations are defined in the Hosts/Managed create_hostss filter.

- Status changed from New to Duplicate
I'm going to tentatively mark this as a dupe of #4477, as this issue is prevalent across the whole host creation/edit form (e.g. with domains). The form wouldn't work well today if we restricted the related resources that users could see, as it would break on edit.
You raise an interesting point about the create_hosts permission - I don't think the filter would be applicable at all here, only for permissions that dealt with existing objects (i.e. view_hosts, power etc.) We'd likely only show host groups that match "view_hostgroups" if we did it.
