When I discovered OSM and I found no Routing capabilities
on osm.org, I thought: Oh what bad they have no routing.

I was very surprised when I discovered openrouteservice
some weeks later... ;-)

So I think at least some kind of Link to a routing app
would be usefull on the start page, so that beginners
can see the full potential behind OSM....
