It's already there in Customize panel dialog for Album & Tracks view.

It's Artwork view button> Group by> Sub Grouping

You mean where to define custom sorting set? Look at the second picture that shows Sort by> "Define custom sorting" menu at the bottom.

Just click on an empty box, then you can choose fields and its order that becomes its name.

ok getting there  i have picked up a few strange things

i dont know if it's  a bug or if i'm doing something wrong  

have all Dave Edmunds albums grouping with Live : Compilation and so on that's great

but

seeing all Various Artists albums  that  have Dave Edmunds on them
if i click any of the   Various Artists albums  it just plays the full album
and not only the  Dave Edmunds tracks

1 or 2  would be fine  

1 is there a way not to show Various Artists albums
2 or only show tracks by the Artists  on  Various Artists albums (eg Dave Edmunds)

ps all the Various Artists albums are unknown grouping atm if that helps

Try artist for group by field and grouping for sub grouping field.
Then it will show only the artist's tracks in various artists albums.

I mentioned the grouping tag simply because you said you're testing with the tag. You could use any tag.
But I have no problem with grouping tag.

i would like to use grouping tag as it is a standard tag but can't work out what the problem is

 i wish musicbee had lots of video tutorials on how to get things done under the hood
