Keywords usually have striking colors and are often bold. It's fine for
short identifiers but if you highlight the whole line it clutters the
view. Maybe font-lock-variable-name-face as an alternative?

Sure thing. I don't mind this part that much.

It's just that, in case of xref-find-definitions, grouping is done
mostly for one observation which still doesn't make much sense to
me. But you are right; there are xref-find-references and
xref-find-apropos out there and making separate interfaces for those
would be silly.
