That's the usual simplicity vs usability vs features problem.

Feel free to configure whatever html fragment you like. This is from our 
sample config:

     logo_string = u'<img src="/wiki/common/moinmoin.png" alt="MoinMoin

I share that problem. Often one thinks something could be done better, 
but the longer you think about it, the more you understand why it was 
made like it is. And if it is only due to lack of really better 
alternatives. :)

And it has also some not solveable problems on HTML level, like long 
texts that can't be wrapped.

A menu is always harder to use than a link (or button).
This is why we only use it for rarely used stuff.
This is why we moved Attachment link out of the actions dropdown.
