The only modification for which I saw nearly complete agreement was my
suggestion to add a top-level entry: Help.

Therefore, this is a formal proposal to amend JoeyH's proposal as
follows:  The existing menu heirarchy should be moved into policy,
with the lone addition of a top-level "Help" category.  Other changes
and modifications can be dealt with later, as formal modifications to
existing policy.

If we follow Manoj's procedures, I need two seconds for this amendment.

Argument for this amendment: it's more specific than JoeyH's, it
outlines *exactly* what to do, and is therefore more suitable for a
yeah-or-nay vote.
