That sounds about reasonable. One possible grouping:
Note that 2.5's library reference has a different chapter organization from 2.4's. See http://docs.python.org/dev/lib/lib.html.
I like it. Its a much cleaner organization than the 2.4 libs. I would like to see it used as a starting point for a reorg of the standard lib namespace.
One question that is raised is whether the categories should map directly to package names in all cases. For example, I can envision a desire that 'sys' would stay a top-level name, rather than 'rt.sys'. Certain modules are so fundamental that they deserve IMHO to live in the root namespace.
