So, I admit I haven't been following this discussion very closely, so
perhaps I'm misreading the page. But it seems to suggest that this
wiki (as opposed to all other wikis) will allow only experts to edit
it. Obviously, having a core of people who maintain and oversee edits
by others is not a bad thing (~Administrators in wikipedia-speak), but
if I'm understanding it correctly, allowing only those people to edit,
and no one else, seems a bit bizarre to me.
