Isn't there a nicer way the groups can be separated?

I use (aset standard-display-table ?\f (vconcat (make-vector 64 ?-) "^L")) to display the page delimiter as a horizontal line, and this is very helpful not only in the *Help* buffer, but in other places too, including source code

This would have global implications, right?
The idea with an overlay could easily work locally, and it's prettier as well.

Couldn't there be a list of all groups in the beginning, with links
going to the bindings belonging to the group?

Like in the *Help* buffer created by `C-h m'?

Yup. That would be fine.
Outline mode, as suggested by Eli, is OK only if it doesn't require people to know some keys in order to even look up the keys.
