I'd really like to remove the giant purple box that's on the top left of
each mediwiki page. It's distracting and very loud. And I'm not sure that
the information it's trying to convey is very clear for new users.

What needs to happen for us to be able to remove it? I know there's a
concern that new users landing on random pages deep in the docs: 1) know
that is is alpha, and 2) are invited to help improve the content, but
again, I'm not convinced that this is really accomplishing those jobs.

Could we just remove it?
Or do we need to come up with replacements first?
