I read here is that there should be a vertical layout to the web page,
where the most important parts of the hierarchy starts at the top.

The worst case is: if you use text, screen reader, or mobile browsers,
you may have difficulty navigating to the information and features you
were after. I can tell you that GNU Herds is especially hard to use
with a text browser such as elinks or lynx. A vertical layout would
help to ease those browser issues.

Is this not defined on the "Charter"?

PS: I suggest we do not e-mail Matt replies about he said as he
complained in IRC before. He is not part of the GNU Herds project and
has other responsibilities.
