For your first two points, I think we will resolve that by removing the
news animation and replacing it with something simpler.

We considered (and implemented) and then dropped highlighting
of the top menu. We wondered whether anyone would ask for it; you
are the first!

Arguments for:

  * Every little bit of orientation information helps.

Arguments against:

  * Unnecessary since the breadcrumbs give you the same
    information (as you pointed out).

  * Slightly more visual noise at the top.

Let's see if others request it (or comment on it).

Thanks again,
