Gene, forgive me while I go off on a slight tangent forking the thread.
I do not thing it is worthwhile for them to do so. There may already be a document somewhere on the wiki on this topic. It will never be found because since the day mediawiki was rolled out there has not been a usable search. I would think that taking a look at existing infrastructure tickets such as the one for getting a usable search for the wiki would be time better spent than writing more pages for the black hole that the wiki has become or dreaming about something that has been shot down repeatedly.
