I'm actually already doing this in 4.7 because I have some settings sub-pages
that I *don't* want in the main navigation menu by default. But where is the
right place for me to inject the change to the values? #submit, or #validate,
or somewhere else? #process looked promising, but it's documented as INTERNAL
and I'm loathe to rely on it being a stable API because of that.

Please do! I would appreciate this.

Lemme guess...I just finished reinventing a wheel. :-) No, I didn't know about
that but will look it up.
