finding independent variable groups

I wonder if it is possible to do the following formula manipulation
task with Mathematica.

Suppose you have a function of 3 variables [x,y,z], where only the
ratio x/y occurs. Example

f[x_,y_,z_]=(x/y) Exp[z]

If now you have a large formula of more than 3 variables, where
however certain variables always occur grouped together, in the same
pattern (like x and y above).

Is there a way to make Mathematica find out such groups of variables
in a larger expression?

Thank you for any help
