I think we should care about the maintenance of the documentation 
anyway. We also need to maintain all the other documentations. I think 
it could be even part of the generated docs and not the wiki.

I also suggest to fill this list about the current trunk/3.0 as a first 

1. It would be a very usefull documentation for the end-users (some 
answers could link the existing documentation, it exists, but I am not 
sure if all the answers are in the current documentation.)

2. It would be a good example who the questions could be answered.

3. It would help to check, if something is missing from the list.

4. There are future branches where some of the components are not 
touched. For example, no web ui or no REST service. A prefilled list 
could help to check if the branch doesn't break any old security 
functionality on trunk.

5. It helps to document the security features in one place. If we have a 
list for the existing functionality in the same format, it would be easy 
to merge the new documentation of the new features as they will be 
reported in the same form. (So it won't be so hard to maintain the list...).
