Definitely a good idea.

Further suggestions:

- Introduce sub menus on separate pages for TCP/IP, DECNet,
ATM, ... i.e. like it is done for SCTP.

- Separate things into top categories
Socket Families (maybe separate page)
- PF_PACKET
- PF_UNIX
- PF_KEY
Protocols (separate page)
- TCP/IP networking (separate page)
- IPv6 (affecting choices below)
- Privary extensions
- multicasting
- routing
- advanced router
- policy routing
- use nfmark with chaching support
- multipath routing
- cached
- rrd
- random
- ...
- multicast routing
- pim v1
- pim v2
- verbose route monitoring
- auto configuration
- dhcp
- boop
- rarp
- tunneling
- IPv4
- IPIP
- GRE
- broadcast
- IPv6
- IPv6oIPv6
- transformations
- IPv4
- AH
- ESP
- IPComp
- IPv6
- AH
- ESP
- IPComp
- ARP daemon
- TCP
- Diagnostics
- Syn Cookies
- SCTP
- ATM
- 802.1d
- 802.1q
- DECnet
- 802.2 LLC
- IPX
- Appletalk
- X.25
- LAPB
- Econet
<<Good title here>>
- Netfilter
- IPsec
- LVS
- Frame Diverter
- QoS & Fair Queueing
- Network testing
- WAN Router

Thoughts?
