I agree with the intent of what you are saying, but it is not an open 
system or a closed system. I am proposing a step in between. See my 
other mail re workflow. We go from:

checkout svn -> edit -> generate patch -> submit patch -> review patch 
-> publish/reject


edit -> review changes -> publish/reject

Note that the last two stages (the control part) are the same. It is 
only the first stages (the ease of editing) that has changed.

Furthermore, I am not talking about open editing like wikipedia (which 
allows anonymous edits). I am talking about "controlled open" editing. 
That is you must register to be able to edit.
