I think this is manageable, we can fallback on wildcards/regex for
ID's so we don't need a keep a list of everything.
we don't want one doc for "bpy.ops.texture.slot_move", better glob
"bpy.ops.texture.slot_*", or  "bpy.ops.texture.*" and then link to a
page explaining about blender texture system.

Tools to validate all operators are covered by the mapping are easy to
write too so the mapping can be maintained and checked to be complete
before release.

IMHO this Just adds 1 level on indirection and is another place to
have to maintain relationships (and another point of failure),
as before the grouping can be done at the *many to one* mapping level,
first checking for exact matches then wildcard/regex.
