Changes (by johnbillion):

 * component:  General => Administration


 I'd like to see some exploration of what the menu could look like for the
 different default user roles, and whether it could behave differently for
 different roles.

 For example the mockup above is what an Administrator sees, but an Editor
 or Author will mainly only see items relating to content (the items under
 `Site`), and a Contributor or Subscriber will see even fewer menu items.

 How could that affect the appearance, grouping, and behaviour of the admin
 menu items?

 There are a few admin menu plugins out there too that should be
 considered, for example OrganizeWP.
