That said, in the example you posted I'd find the lines linking the mobs to the unit frames really distracting. Nameplate position on screen provides that information already in a much more intuitive, less intrusive way.
I don't think that you would like to see the friendly nameplates as a dps in raid, since you don't want to target them accidentally. So your only options is the unitframes, you can disable whatever part that you don't want to see.

Also: I doubt it that you can sort nameplates by role/class/name/party etc.
