I think a wiki architecture is a good idea, but with edits limited to MCB members (possibly just to supporting members?) rather than the world at large.

I'm definitely interested - I've got to the conclusion that the current crop of magfed markers are junk, with all of them having at least one major design flaw. A magfed enmey would be fantastic.
