I'm advocating that the main menu link be called
'Supported Applications', and I'm reserving judgement on
what the resulting page looks like.  However, I think your
suggestion is fine, so long as the app db is not buried as
far as you would seem to like it.

Yikes.  I hadn't understood that the whole menu tree would be
visible on the main page.  I don't like that at all.
34 choices on the first page is way more than the 7 max
I advocate...
