Ok, valid point.

So you suggest a limit, like if there are more than three authors, it's
a community effort, right? Hmm, sounds reasonable, so should we change
all docs containing more than three authors?

But of course there is a potential problem: if someone changes a doc
and adds himself to the list of authors (even if he changes only one
line/word) then this doc will soon exceed the limit and gets a
"community" doc with the author info removed anyway. Might not be
a problem, but who knows.
