Hi Tyler,

another valuable hint. I like this clear structuring of information - 
which admittedly is a nontrivial process while building an 
information-rich website. Actually, it is an act of continuously 
striving for improvement. The recently added feature matrix was one such 
point, here is another which I have put on our list.

So thanks for your hints & clarifications,
