 Replying to [comment:2 joyously]:
 > I like the idea, but it's a little tricky with things that are done in
 the Customizer and things that are done on other admin pages. The home
 page is something that is still available in both (thank goodness!).
 > The things listed under Next Steps involve creating content. Deciding
 what goes on your home page might be difficult at the point of
 installation, since there is no content. You can't choose a non-existent
 page for the Home Page. Perhaps it is better under More Actions? Or just
 doesn't belong because you need content first?

 One of the more frustrating things I've seen with users is reverse
 engineering the homepage because the "hello world" post feels like a
 homepage when they first begin.  I think this link will help users along
 the path of understanding which is the first biggest hurdle.  They may not
 necessarily create a homepage at this moment but they will understand more
 about the structure of a homepage.  This will lead to less confusion and
 less duplicate work.
