Nobody makes those symlinks because that functionality is handled by
cd. 'cd' for $HOME, 'cd /' for root.

There's no 'cd /' on the web. It has to be implemented by a link to
the main page. Since almost every website has an identification
string on it, it hurts nothing to make it link to the main page.
