Because the need to change the link target was never mentioned; also
because the configuration variable's name is not

By the way, using script names as values for such variables has always
bothered me. I would prefer more neutral strings like 'search',
'structure' and so on. But this is a separate discussion.

Not all views are insertable; see
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/view-updatability.html. However,
phpMyAdmin does not attempt to detect this when showing the menu tabs.
