The purpose of giving it a name was to be able to talk about it. It  
makes it easier if everybody calls it the same thing. It also improved  
the symmetry with the content. It can't be removed without redesigning  
the page. It just isn't something that should catch the eye. Your eyes  
should be drawn to the "yellow verb box" unless you know what you are  
looking for. If you know what you are looking for you might choose  
other paths such as the search box or tags (in the original design).

Mvh Sebastian
