My question is concerned with the *contents* of wiki articles.
Suppose the original author or the current "maintainer" says, "I want
to keep this page under good control by limiting edit rights to
designated people", how would we respond?  We can say, "Sorry, you are
against the goal of the Wiki.  You cannot do that".  Or, we can assign
him/her as the "moderator" of that page and let him be the primary
