I'm a strong proponent of the evolutionary approach 
as "revolutions" on webpages break deep linking.

It is a good idea to split users and developers,
but I don't think we should split testers and documenters out to visibly.
They actually  belong to the developers group.

We could rename developers to "coders".

This sections seems to be too elaborate I believe,
we might not structure it is this detail and use more links.

I'm for a menu on the right.
Usually close to the scroll bar and puts more weight on the actual
content of the page.

Possile, but this preprocessiong script should be simple.
