FYI, other than the text of C-h i I talked about in another
message I like this iteration of this.  Two small comments:

Now that Other Help Commands has two "groupings" if you'd
like to prioritize packages as you said, you could put the
tutorial line at the top of the second grouping and
prioritize both.

C-h g seems to me like it belongs better in the Misc section
(in the 3rd grouping).  It would be the only non-control key
there (presumably because C-g isn't available) but it seems
the better logical positioning for what it does (and it does
make it stand out a little bit).

Actually, here's another option for the grouping the Misc
section.  Use the same ordering as found in the about screen
(I'm not sure if this changed in Emacs 28 from 27).  Also,
you can put the C-e binding with the other package
commands.  So I think something like this works pretty well:

C-f     Emacs FAQ
C-n     News of recent changes
C-p     Known problems
C-d     Debugging Emacs
C-t     Emacs TODO

C-a     About Emacs
g       Show information about the GNU project
C-w     Information on absence of warranty
C-c     Emacs copy permission (GNU General Public License)
C-o     Emacs ordering and distribution information
C-m     Order printed manuals
