I was looking at how to split apart my link lists so that one particular one (website sections) can be first, and then the other two can come after archive links farther down the page. Although you can use wp_get_links to get just the one set of links, there's no obvious way to do something similar but with exclusions. This would be good to minimize the hardcoding of more ids (in case new link lists are made in the future, etc.).
Something like how you exclude pages would be perfect.
