I personally strongly prefer having GB and GBC separate, because their libraries are so distinct and represent different eras in gaming. Yes, there's some overlap with the grey cart games like Montezuma's Return that will run on the monochrome Game Boy, but generally the type of game you see on GBC is so substantially different that the distinction is well worth making.
I'm perennially frustrated by a website I use that lumps GB and GBC together -- it makes it annoyingly hard to find what I'm looking for, or to keep straight in my head which games were GBC-only.
BTW don't worry if the sections for those portables are sparsely populated. I, and maybe others too, view those sections as almost something of a bonus, since console gaming is the main focus of the site.
Personally, I love the inclusion of handhelds, as I've always been a handheld gamer first, console second ever since I got my first Game Boy with Tetris in the early 90s. I didn't own a console until almost '96-97, when I got my first SNES.
Also,there are still TONS of classic Game Boy and GBC games yet to be reviewed, and still a sizeable chunk of GBA to review (even if RPGs are passed.). I have always enjoyed the VGC's perspective on the handheld counterparts to the console versions, such as the reviews of The Lion King on the 16-bit systems and the GB and GG versions.
