Indeed, it appeared only very recently (in an unreleased version,
in fact, which is not that helpful...).

It is to let you decide the layout and description used for each
menu entry.  This is especially important for the Info output format
but less important for other formats.  Hopefully, not in the next 
release of Texinfo, but in the following, the need to do a menu should 
be gone.

With the version of texi2html you have, you can use --no-menu.

It's because it is the Top element, which is treated especially.  I 
just read the code, and indeed, it is not very easy to prevent the 
contents to be output there.  I think that you need an init file this time.

The init file just needs to unset the unconditional contents formatting.
you could try a file, called for example no_content.init containing only:


Then you'll call texi2html like

texi2html --init book.init --init no_content.init ......
