I'm a bit conceptually blocked on this by waiting to hear what access
control rules are supposed to pertain to the help wiki, and getting
the actual rules to match that (if they differ).  At the moment I can
edit the Clients page but not link it into the places it ought to be.
Can you chase this?

I suspect we do not really have 20 clients that people actually want
to use, probably more like 4-8 if that.  Let's emphasize them and add
the niche or prototype ones in a less detailed way.
