User-level features.

Not too much, but still enough for a separate node, mainly to mention
basic customizable options and also to describe the difference between
tab-bar and tab-line, with cross-references between the node "Tab Bars"
and a new node "Window Tab Lines" (in the Emacs manual).

Yes, Lisp-level features could have a small node in the Elisp manual
as well like "Header Lines".

Than maybe a new node "Window Tab Lines" in the Emacs manual
could be a subnode of "Windows", not subnode of "Window Convenience".
