 From a lurker here:

IMO, the Internet RFC process is a well-proven one for accomplishing 
what you folks have been discussing here.  (See 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Request_for_Comments)

Rather than a free-for-almost-all edit process, it calls for an editor 
to be named, who will be the central collector of proposed changes, and 
who go through a defined process for approval before making the 
revisions for voting upon. 

While it's true that the process's development preceded the wide 
availability of collaboration tools like wiki's, the principles of a 
rigorous change process can help ensure that all proposals are given due 
consideration and thus will lend authority to the resulting product.

Recommended for consideration,

AS
