Nice. I like this structure. I think we should add a link called 
Community in the nav bar and link it to 
http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/WPD:Community. Community Pages seems to 
be buried under Docs which does not seem to be a logical place for it 
and requires its own section. It's similar to the concept of Contact Us 
that you might find on any site.

I would move the Contribute to Web Platform Docs  and Stay in touch 
sections from http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/Main_Page to the 
Community Page and replace it with "Do you want to get involved in our 
Community effort. Please check out our Community Page." (Sorry if the 
line sounds a bit cheezy. We can replace it with something better). If 
someone wants to get involved, the Community Page serves as a one place 
resource for contributing, staying in touch and at the same time 
highlights the current efforts being undertaken.
