Comment (by karsten):

 Hmm, this is tricky.  Neither of the three suggestions is bad, but I'm
 also not a big fan of either of them:

  - I still think that we should reserve the navigation bar for actual

  - I don't think that we should split the current single page into three,
 because that wouldn't distribute the content equally; it's like writing a
 book with three chapters: prologue, the big story chapter, epilogue.

  - I could rather see us split up the page into six subpages that are
 currently contained in the big story chapter: Relay Descriptors, Bridge
 Descriptors, Hidden/Onion Service Descriptors, BridgeDB, TorDNSEL,
 Torperf; plus another two that we might add sooner or later: Webstats and
 Bwauth.  But I also believe that's a bit of overkill.

  - The current navigation side boxes next to the jumbotron don't really
 fit into the general page design.

  - The table under "Available Descriptors" is already like a table of
 contents, except for the "Automated Downloads" part at the end.

  - I'm still concerned about having to find new icons.

 Suggestion: How about we simply drop all navigational elements like the
 navigation bar and the navigation side box and leave the big table with
 buttons at the page start for people to navigate?

 One tiny downside is that we'd have to come up with a similar solution for
 the [https://onionoo.torproject.org/protocol.html Onionoo page] which is
 quite long.  Though, hmm, maybe we can just keep the table of contents

 Too unfancy?
