Thanks Bastien :)

Hi Russel, while I appreciate the significance of Worg, I currently
don't feel that adding it to the header improves the site.

There are two concerns I have on this.

1. I'm very wary of "header creep", see https://0x0.st/iFS7.png for a
   mock up of an "extreme" example.
   IMO the current state is "bulging", with 4-6 items as the ideal.
   Adding Worg would take us to 8. In addition to the increased number
   of visual elements, it also lessens the individual significance of
   the per-existing items. If a "features" item has 3 other items, it is
   much more emphasised than when it has 7 other items.

   This is just a long winded way of me expressing the view that adding
   to the header affects the perception of the rest of the header, and
   thus the overall effect may be negative, as I suspect it would be in
   this case.

2. Worg is usually linked to in very specific instances, e.g.
   "(scientific) papers [about Org]", "The FAQ", "Using Org as a
   spreadsheet".
   It is also often linked, 11 times on the index page for instance.
   This makes me suspect that there is not sufficient benefit in adding
   it to the header.

I could well be missing something obvious, but those are my current
thoughts.
