That should be fine to illustrate the initial design using a picture .
Nonetheless in practice as more and more plugins are installed they
may add further mainnav items dynamically . There should be something
in there to «control» their behavior .

good point , but those items top right look like they will be fixed .
As I mentioned that will reduce space for mainnav items. So I guess
this should be confirmed by building a prototype and making some tests

... maybe when project will be mature, it might be a good idea to
provide a mobile app or optimize BH to work with smartphones and
tablets ...
I wanted to try doing this before with Trac , but was very busy at the time :-/

I c . Need to check how this is represented in Trac and
whether it's possible to add it in the theme itself
(because that's definitely not the metanav ;) .

In default Trac installation ...

metanav => Login (or username if user already logged into the site),
Preferences, About, Help, RPC API docs, ...
footer => Powered by Trac statement , Trac logo , Visit Trac project ...

In wireframes they are missing afaics
