Provide control of order of "menu items" in Community to Community Owern

Connections Communities use a menu bar for the different apps within the most popular and modern approaches like highlights. The sort order of the items is given by the software package. There are good ideas why "Highlight" should become the first entry in Connections 7 and replaces the current (Release 6.5 an prior) first item which is "Overview".
Still this order can become very arguable with community owners and users who use Connections a lot already.
So here is my wish: Give the Community owners more power and let make them the decision to change the default order either given by the software package or (better) by a global default configured in the setup.

    currently the owners can control the order in which tabs appear by changing the order of how the apps are visible on the overview tab. However, certain tabs (Status updates & Recent Updates) can't be moved or removed. I would certainly like to be able to move or remove these as they are hardly used in most communities. When highlights becomes the new norm from 7 onwards this will be even more important as removing the overview page (which is in the plans as I gather?) might mean losing control completely
