At the point where server_databases.php is mentioned, I just picked a
random page name as an example. The default/start page should of course
be index.php, capable of building the entire page (navi + main) but I
wanted to point out that any section_subsection.php file would be able
to do this as well (but with the associated content of course).

I understand your confusion, I'll try to clarify the text.

The reason for the seperate inc.php file, is because the
section_subsection class that is defined in it, will not only be called
from the corresponding section_subsection.php file.
Thinking of it now, the section_subsection.inc.php files should be
section_subsection.Class.php instead.
I'm going to redefine this part of the proposal anyway. I'll add the use
of a factory [2] (design pattern) to instantiate the different page classes.
