I wouldn't say it was miscellaneous. The whole point of that page is to
summarise all the features that you might want to know about when

Hmm, well, I personally am not a big fan of too many menus. I think
simplicity for the web pages is quite important here, and another menu
just adds clutter to a page which isn't actually that big anyway.

This is true, and I would have gone for just GTK+ but it is awfully
short for a title. Perhaps something like "The GTK+ Project"?
