Yes. Typical such items are `Help Online', `Help on the Web', and `Web Tour'.

It's about the same level as these - perhaps they could be grouped in a submenu,
say `Overview':

 Emacs Tutorial
 Emacs Tutorial (choose language)
 Emacs FAQ
 Emacs News
 Emacs Known Problems

BTW, `Emacs' is not needed in any of those, and `What's New' would be better
than `News', which could be confused with Usenet. 

Also, why have both `Tutorial' and `Tutorial (choose language)'? Just `Tutorial'
is enough, but it should ask for the language (and optionally save that choice,
just as it saves the tutorial position). IOW:

 Web Tour
 What's New
 Known Problems
