We’re looking at two related pieces of this:
1) For OneDrive for Business, enable shared folders to be added to the root of the OneDrive folder at all (like in OneDrive Personal).
2) For OneDrive across business and personal, enable shared folders to be placed into subfolders.
We appreciate your patience; this is significant engineering work given the architecture of the products and our diverse customer base, spanning individuals to small businesses to multi-national enterprises to government agencies. We aim to address this while maintaining our industry-leading security, privacy, and compliance commitments.
Thank you for the continued feedback.

Well, AFAIK Groove's Web infrastructure has been either removed, or under the life support.
The only part of Groove platform that was left was its client app on Windows that allowed synchronization of data from SharePoint to local drives. Other functionality (e.g., full Groove Workspaces, Contacts, etc.) was cut from Groove's client in 2013 version.
The scenario we strongly believe is needed is simple:
1. User gets account in O365
2. User downloads a third party app that provides access to ODfB
3. 3rd party app automatically installs ODfB client to user's PC/Mac if it wasn't installed,
4. Once user chooses one or more locations to sync in the 3rd party app (e.g., ODfB or custom locations like SharePoint libraries), 3rd party app invokes ODfB client API to request synchronization of that location (locations)Daniel Kornev commented
Same request goes in support for users of our product, Zet Universe. With API for OneDrive for Business sync client, we could help our users to have offline story with their OneDrive for business data.
