One could argue that "Releases", "Updates", and "Install" should be
merged into a common download link. They all are the same thing. ;]

I completely agree with you that not everything can live in the
header.

However Worg is a key component because it's community maintained
documentation. Not just anyone can upload to the main site, but Worg
is as "wiki" as we have. As an integral part of the community
supported documentation I thought it should be in the header.

I'm not suggesting any other header spam. ;]
