It was more of an organic kind of split, mostly around functionality.

With the exception of some static pages that were handled directly by the
MainApp.elm, all the other pages had their own separate file.
Most of them were following TEA but some ended up not needing their own
model and update because they could delegate their actions to the top
Functionality around routing was in its own file, same for the server
access API.
Business Objects Types were in their own file that was imported all over
the place
Serialization (encoders and decoders) was in its own file.
There was a Components.elm that was mainly various aggregates of elm-html
(simple functions).
There were also a few components (Dropbox, Carousel) that lived in their
own .elm files.
Some complex forms got also extracted at one point into their own files.
There were also some CSS only files.
One of them, SharedCSS.elm taught me a very important lesson:
Don't put code that changes frequently in a file that is imported by a lot
of other files.
changes to this file led to the longest compilation times. :)

There is NO FATE, we are the creators.
