How about a separate section for forks whether Open Source (HadoopDB)
or not (EnterpriseDB) as well as whether closely related
ones (Postgres Plus) or distantly related ones (Netezza).

I think one of the neatest strengths of selling the use of
Postgres (over, say, MySQL or microsoft's) is the wide range
of forks that a company can grow into if they feel any
particular need down the road.

I wonder if our community website embraced the proprietary
forks more, people new to the project (say, CFOs) would be
quicker to see that this is mature high-end serious technology.
