An obvious solution is to add a desktop environment name to the package's

with "kde-" or simple "k". But this is also confusing and may require much of
work as
renaming is not an easy task.

So are there any ideas on how to organize this better?

Wouldn't simple "tags" be better than RPM groups?

Then you could filter on things like "Audio", "Video", "GTK",
"GNOME"!, "KDE", "Qt", "Browser", "Personal Organisation", OSS,
non-OSS etc?

By sorting & filtering on more than one tag, you could view for
example, Audio apps in sub-sections depending on libraries. Desktop
evironments could by default promote applications that "fit" best, in
an application browser.
