If we're keeping the clients page, I would really like to see the
feature matrix linked from that page. It shouldn't be on that main
clients page (for the reasons already stated), but Stefan makes a point
that /it is really useful for many users./ Add "Compare features of the
various different clients here: <link>" and users who will benefit will
most definitely click on it. I think that's win-win.
