One thing which your mockup get right, in my point of view, is the focus on 
groups. Addressbooks are hard to organize. Usually you end up with lots of 
entries, but an alphabetical order is not very natural. But groups are 
natural. That's the category people use when thinking about other people. So 
promoting this to a primary criterion for structuring people data sounds like 
the right thing to do.
