It would be good that when 'Refine current rule' is used that the refinements respect the original rule that they are based on.

For example, for a road dataset, if a rule is used to exclude unsealed roads then a categorised refinement of that rule should not create classifications that include unsealed roads.

I had the same poblem and i was able to do this using the CASE conditionals

CASE WHEN "pntcnt" <50 THEN "pntcnt" END

And my rule was to show only pntcnt that are lower then 50

ticket #10815 is about a different thing: expression in rule based symbology are written in a wrong way, at least when used to refine rules, see #10815-7

This would be a great improvement to see! I've attached a screen shot to help illustrate the problem.

Also, if the "Label" that shows up in the layer list was styled with just the ranges. Otherwise it creates a large label.
Maybe it could create the label similarly to how it's created when using just the "graduated" style.

Currently (it includes the expression!):

"column" >= 0 AND "column" <= 1
"column" >= 1 AND "column" <= 4
"column" >= 4 AND "column" <= 8


(CASE WHEN "unique_value_column" = "value" THEN "column" END) >= 0 AND (CASE WHEN "unique_value_column" = "value" THEN "column" END) <= 1
(CASE WHEN "unique_value_column" = "value" THEN "column" END) >= 1 AND (CASE WHEN "unique_value_column" = "value" THEN "column" END) <= 4
(CASE WHEN "unique_value_column" = "value" THEN "column" END) >= 4 AND (CASE WHEN "unique_value_column" = "value" THEN "column" END) <= 8

Preferred (in a simplified manner):

0 - 1
1 - 4
4 - 8

The preferred type is better for when viewing in the map canvas and trying to create an actual map with a legend.
