Maybe the current group label could be generalized to a path in a tree
e.g. (<file> <class> <method>) where each element of such a tree path is
simply a string and the UI can display it either as a flat list or some
of kind tree widget.

Not really.  For a time we grouped compiler error/warning/notes with a
kind of tree widget; the idea was to make it easier to skip over notes
and warnings and see error more quickly, but in practice much time was
spend on opening and closing those subtrees.  I don't know if a tree
widget is a win.  In Emacs such things always seem to require a lot of
extra screen space compared to the GUI widgets in other IDEs.
