There are various options - its easy to change the permissions.

Many Confluence wiki's I create tend to have permissions for anyone 
who's registered with confluence to edit pages (to encourage 
involvement) & anyone to view.

Though often folks only allow 'committers' (in the wiki not CVS sense) 
permissions to edit pages but allow anyone who's registered to comment 
on pages. Maybe the latter - along with a low barrier of entry (let 
people have write access when they ask for it, then reject it when they 
mess up) is a middle ground.
