Good, I'm glad I understand it, and I'm further glad our
disagreement is straightforward - because I think both
points are wrong.  <grin>.

[snipped your clarification; I now understand you are arguing
for your perceived 'best practices']

[snipped your list of proposed cool things in an announcement box].

I think that, today, we do not have any of the news items
you describe.  Your are imagining that Brian or Jeremy has more time to
repost pieces of the WWN to a different box.  afaik, they don't.

You say "we'll just snag pieces of Alexandres release notices".
Who's we?

Now, if we had a volunteer PR person that was coordinating and
driving PR for Wine, and *that person* wanted and was willing
to maintain and keep fresh such a section, then I would
be persuaded.  

Without such a driving force, I believe that a 'latest news' box would
be either a stale and obsolete piece of screen real estate,
or useless rehashing of the existing WWN content.
