While we are starting to organize the new web space, a couple of things come to mind.
a) it would be nice to make the entry way have some visible SVG (even if relatively little)
b) it would be nice to have a big room inside that looks more like the entrance to a gallery than like a wiki or a blog
c) we might also want to make the gallery part have a connective topology that is just a wee bit different than your average wiki (maybe shaped more like a gallery through which one could amble).
d) it might be nice to invite Jerrod Maddox to do a small work celebrating the occasion of the opening of the new page. 
e) it might be nice to invite entries into such a gallery from the Inkscape community
f) we might even want to have rotating exhibits in some of the rooms
I was in Cincinnati recently and become reacquainted with the work of Charley Harper
It is such fun vector based art -- he was commissed by the National Park Service and did an absolutely stunning series.
Anyhow, populating our pages with artwork would probably make some intrinsic sense.
