What adds to the confusion is that we have an "exclude from navigation"
flag in the default settings by now.

Why not make this setting the only thing there is and maybe trigger
setting it for items assigned as default view. That way people could
simply tick it off again and the item would reappear in the navigation.

Just thinking out loud ...
