Intro paragraph moved up. Page flow of information improved.
Eliminating <screen> lets xml deal with width formatting. 
Required is self explanatory.  
Optional covers utilizes <check>, add extra functionality <check>,
creates binding for <check>.
No new ent's.
Added download space for patches, fonts, skins.

First impression - too much whitespace and too long in intro section.

Overall: flexable.

Looks good from here.  What do you dislike about it?
