Or alternatively, I would ask, iff the extra text is worth seeing in a
menu item point to a page, why it is also not worth seeing in the page

 Abbrevs Concepts: Fundamentals of defined abbrevs

Should open to a page

Fundamentals of defined abbrevs
(Abbrevs Concepts).

I might even go further and just drop the Node node which is perhaps a
form of explicit navigation that we are infliciting of the user.

Why not have a visualisation that looks like:

   - The Fundamentals of defined Abbrevs

And points to a node

The fundamentals of defined abbrevs.

"Abbrev Concepts" gets relegated to the role of the anchor text, just
used for linking the two together. Visible to the developer only.
