That all sounds good. The only reason I'd add a "Dictionaries" grouping
is if there were 3 or more groups with 3 or more children. Anything less
is kind of frivolous.

As the installer cannot preview icons, it would make more sense to have
a single entry "Additional icon overlays" which installs all the extra
sets.

I think we should keep the dictionary options as they are, because it is
fairly obvious what they are.
