The approach I'm considering is the way it is often done in the computer 
science academic world. Its main disadvantage is that it is not WYSIWYG. 
Its advantages are very precise formatting control, text source files 
that work well with revision control, and availability of prepared 
BibTex data for many publications.

However, I don't want to exclude others who might not be familiar with 
LaTex but would otherwise contribute.

It's not just okay, it's excellent. I plan to comment on it as I learn 
relevant information.
