What is the purpose of this change? Putting a major topic like Eevee or Cycles on a deeper subpage makes it harder to find. And it would break many external links to Cycles docs for no clear reason.

I decided to keep the structure as is but still group the render engines to keep the layout simple. I had to move some other pages deeper such as freestyle and audio rendering.

See rBM4726 for details

I still think it's a mistake to put them deeper in the menu. In my opinion it does not make the layout significantly simpler and makes important information harder to find.

I think the same goes for other cases. Preferences > Tabs, Paint & Sculpting > Modes and Physics > Physics Types. It's making less important information more prominent.
