The life of a dyslexic is full of surprises.  That should have read 
"This is a bad-thing(tm).."

I assume that as soon as we create per PMC Wiki those PMC would 
discover that they have pride of craft in the content of that Wiki.  
That will trigger oversight.  That oversight will temper the danger of 
the open loop control currently in place.

I don't have any desire to keep anybody from engaging direct editing of 
the content.  The trick is getting the right balance of lots of voices 
and a cooperative group of high mutual regard that keep the thing on 
track.  A balancing act.
