I agree. I think this is a much needed addition to the program. All workarounds to achieve something like this are quite cumbersome and ruin the experience.
I really would like to see this added.

I would like to see this happen also. I was able to do this easily in MediaBrowser, but I've since converted over to XBMC. Would be nice to have these sections on the homescreen:
TV - Animated
TV - Documentaries

One more for this one! I like the idea.

There is currently work being done to create a new database schema for xbmc which (hopefully) allows the flexibility to do stuff like this. As things are now, there are "hackish" ways it can be accomplished (usings Sets to subdivide movies, using fake nfos to create special organization under tvshows, etc.) None of these hacks are good long term solutions and all of them are rather complex to setup.
Point is, until the new schema gets ironed out and implemented, this is very unlikely to be addressed. Gotta walk before you can run...

Cool, well at least something is in the works that might allow us to do this at some stage.
I think Plex more or less re-wrote the entire original XBMC library functionality from scratch to get to where they are now so I didn't expect it to be easy.
I really do believe that having this sort of flexibility would take XBMC a huge leap forward though. Not only will it allow users to setup and group their library based on their own preferences and type of content they have but it could also potentially be beneficial to add-ons and/or allow for some quite exciting options with skins.
I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that we might see something like this in the next major release

+1 to this request.

I don't think there's any doubt this would be a useful feature, just a matter of willing developers and finishing higher priorities (such as finalising Dharma. Plus the active devs have already announced they will be pretty busy with pvr stuff for Eden).
Oh and great work OP, very informative feature request.
