Cleaner for what reasons?

So you are proposing the following library packages:

libedataserver
libedataserverui
libebook
libedata-book
libecal
libedata-cal
libgroupwise

And then binary packages for the Groupwise helpers, the Exchange
helpers, and the server binaries themselves.

I'm also not sure where the backends would go in this scheme.

No, I don't think that is a good idea either.

By the magic of grep, libedataserverui/e-passwords.c uses e-msgport.c.
