Such management tools should allow people that have the responsibility 
to validate and publish content on the website to quickly grasp the job 
they have to do. For example, I may want to have a quick look at all 
changed documents that have the "forms" "flowscript" or "sitemap" tags, 
without having to scroll through all the tags. Or also notification 
emails or RSS feeds to track changes to such tags.

What I'm seeking for is tools that make writing docs really easy. If the 
process to perform a task for which you don't have a high motivation is 
too heavy, then you simply don't do that task. If the tools make this 
easy and notify you (in whatever form) of what you have or should do, 
then there's a higher chance that you will do it.

Well, I guess I'm describing something named... is it CMS? ;-P
