Yep.  This is what I wanted to suggest and what we are using in Debian
Med for instance.  If you look at the bio task[1] you can even see some
hidden (as in terms of hidden from the Blends framework because using
^X-) categories like

X-Begin-Category: Phylogenetic analysis
Depends: ...
X-End-Category: Phylogenetic analysis

X-Begin-Category: Sequence alignments and related programs.
Depends: ...
X-End-Category: Sequence alignments and related programs.

X-Mark: Prospective packages are starting here.
X-Mark: Packages in Vcs - Information about these is queried from UDD as well

etc.  These kind of structured comments are not using fully consistently
but might help to get ideas for new features.

Kind regards
