Chess Openings - A Deeper Dive

As @byedidia pointed out in the comments of my previous post, the groupings of the openings can be improved upon.

Here is my first attempt at a deeper dive and more specific categorisation.

I would be very interested in further thoughts on how these groupings can be improved, in particular the "miscellaneous" categories are somewhat annoying.

    I think there is something wrong with your the way your algorithm counts. According to my database (chessbase) 3...cxd4 (open Sicilian) has been played 511k times while the Benko gambit has been played about 59k times. I would suggest lumping together all openings at 6 plys so you can compare apples to apples.
