it around the pages

The old UI golden rule by Apple (before Windows with all "its" - sometimes creazy applications
- existed) was that "you shall not have more than 3 
levels menus". This to say that I tend to agree with Taher here. Thought I'm not sure Sharan's
intention was to create 3rd level menus. Because I have 
never seen that on web pages (or I forgot), where you have only horizontal menus entries with
each vertical sub-menus. Most of the times we indeed put 
what would be 3rd level menus as links into pages, this is something you can't easily do out
of the HTML paradigm.

a lot of value to make it a top level menu item.

+1, but then will need more redirections

documentation, community, customers

and layout of the page

Moot point, but again the HTML paradigm allows for more solutions than 2nd level menus...
It's all about creativity...

I want to add that I'm all for Subscriptions and Reservations pages, good idea. We have already
those pages for starting
The 2nd should be amended/completed
