I'm not sure if I get your read on Jonathan's idea.  Are you saying, as
I think Rahul did in a separate list, that this is already covered in
the default bookmarks?

If that is what you mean, the reason I asked Jonathan to bring it up
here is:

* We could really give attention to some sites we want to give a
marketing boost to

* We can remove them later, just draw attention to them for launch and a
while afterward

On the other side of the argument ...

* Do we want the homepage to become an advertising medium?  This seems a
step in that direction.  Maybe that is OK, maybe not ...

I think I like the idea, but I'm a bit concerned about people losing
faith in the homepage because it seems advertising v. informative.
