It would be quite awkward if we have a documentation site but direct 
users to write their howtos and recipes on empty wiki. It looks like 
you'd be saying to a common: You're not worth using our CMS. Write some 
content in our trash-all-there wiki and we will kindly pick it up from 
there. OR NOT.

My thought: make user registration at CMS as easy as possible. Grant 
edit rights in Daisy for some cocoon-documentation-firing-ground site. 
Pick documents from there and put it into main documentation with ease 
when the document is mature enough. On wiki users also have to register 
before editing and that did not make problems.

What for really? We will have whole content there (with metadata and 
comments). Why not make it default Every new cocoon 
release would get a static snapshot of online site.
