A d.o category/tag would make sense to me, but a package/category on the
Modules page would not. Over the years, module packages have been
(ab)used to group modules by "type of functionality". "API" does not
describe a certain functionality.
While your idea makes some sense for the case of installing/enabling
modules, it's going to be highly confusing for users that want to
E.g., enable a "Foo UI" module in the "Bar" package/group, and Drupal
tells you that "Foo API" module also needs to be enabled. Fine.
Test-drive, dislike, go back, and disable "Foo UI" module, and... an
epic journey to find "Foo API" module begins.
