I find it very subjective, or, at best, orthogonal to anything I care  

If I'm working in a ZEO package, is an import from ZODB local? How  
about transaction?

If I import asyncore or cPickle, is that coming from the standard  
library? It is today, but it wasn't in the past, when the code I'm  
reading may have been written.

The grouping in PEP 8 is based on packaging decisions that are  
irrelevant to the meaning of the software.
