For example, in the following screenshot a lot of unity-related packages are grouped with a lot of gstreamer-related packages and other things not related to either of them. Couldn't this be better?

You're right, that can get very cluttered. Fortunately, that's where
my implementation isn't meeting the specification right now, so I'm
working on fixing that. Instead, Ubuntu base should only be for the
ubuntu-desktop meta package, and other packages like overlay-scrollbar
should be listed as usual, grouped with the same logic we use to group
applications (but without the icons and application names, of course).
The refactoring I mentioned is about making that grouping logic more
sensible and less application-centric.
