Actually, I meant wiki according to its classic, collaborative meaning:
What you folks are describing is a web page, not really a wiki.
Exactly, and that is appropriate for something whose primary target is
organizations that are giving large amounts of money and time to the
IETF. A "collaborative page" can easily go sideways with contributors
who don't understand the parameters of what is meant to be there. In
many cases such as WGs, such sideways motion is fine; for a page whose
audience are often people who don't know about the IETF but are tasked
with deciding whether or not to give us significant financial support.
Perhaps, but in a wiki context repair is easy as any reasonable wiki
software will provide a history. In addition, at least one proposal
was that editing be limited to some form of registered users which
should also mean that abuse can be mitigated.
