 You mean like the split of the user page was done some few years ago:
<http://www.debian.org/users/> was a single page in the old days until
I started on scripts to split it without losing translations and
annoying translators. Sure, can and should definitely be done, consider
it put onto some obscure todo list. :)

 The idea about the logo cloud sounds convincing, but first we'd need to
collect them.

 Thanks for the brainstorming!
