Hi ben and *,
thanks for feedback. I reworked the mockup based on your input. 
Additionally i made a version (and some mutations) for the 'startpage' 
of the search.

Have a look:

The t3.org pages for comparison:

@ Startpage:
I'm not sure if the sections are too difficult to make for typo3.org 
(from a technical view). Would be nice if somebody who has insight of 
the pagetree of typo3.org and knows how the search is configured could 
provide some feedback on this topic. The points in the sections don't 
follow a real concept, it was led by the feeling what could be useful 
for constricting the search in order to get better results. To clarify 
which points to take, I suggest an analysis of the statistics of 
typo3.org to identify which sections are most visited.
