Which seems to be not easy to understand, as site.xml is in fact

What about, in site.xml, making all top-level links tabs, and the 
contained links the navigation links?

In this way the site can also have more levels of tabs, it just depends 
on the skin on how to show them. They may even not be represented as 
tabs in some skins.

Tabs came before site.xml, so we didn't know this when creating that 
file. Maybe now the tiome is right to switch?
