Here's my current thinking...

- Articles are submitted as wiki pages, initially as drafts until
  officially reviewed and published.

- Each author can individually decide if the article is to be 
  editable by others, and if the article can be publicly viewed 
  while the article is in its draft stages.

- Once "published", articles tend to be fairly static except for
  minor editing fixes and possible references to related future
  articles.  But, this occurs by convention, not because the system
  disallows it.

- Each article will have a comments section or separate "-Talk" page
  for comments and discussion about the article.

I don't mind reviewing/editing articles, that really doesn't
eat up that much time.  But it would be better if we had a pool
of reviewers.  Or, perhaps we simply say that an article has to
be approved by at least two or three reviewers before it can
be "published", and we let reviewers self-select.
