I haven't been aware of that nice page of screenshots and I agree it is 
a time to refresh official website and your collection is a way to go. 
Do you have some more concrete proposal?

I would start with screenshots of nice work by Gary Chambers on Flickr 
which is going to be included in Squeak distro sooner or later, so, 
which one to choose as a first on Screenshots page?

What more to add? One EToys, one Crocket, OLPC, ...

I would introduce sections, with one or two screenshots then a ling to 
the section subpage with more. Sections can be named as in projects: 
Development, Education, 3D worlds, Web, etc
