Status: merely my (Sam's) proposal. Edit at will. Names/labels are WIP and placeholder. We can bike-shed about this at our leisure. Note that we should try and keep existing URLs mapping to an equivalent page where it makes sense - the actual URLs should change rarely and only when necessary.

Contextual Navigation

Some pages will need a block of contextual links in a sidebar. For the blog it will be categories and recent/related posts. Where we've broken out a page/topic into sub-pages, we'll list and link those. Note that wordpress might struggle to deal with one page being a sub-page of more than one other page.. so perhaps a related-to relationship is a better way of modelling it. Or we could have "sub-pages" and "related pages" in a sidebar.
