One thing that would be a problem with that is licensing. The content
of all documents should be under a similar license.. and when you have
extra authors.. do they retain their copyright or are they doing a
work for hire (or signing over copyright) to the Magazine . However
thats a non-technical problem (like trademarks, editorial control to
make sure legal problems don't occur (plagiarism,
trademark/patent/copyright infringement, etc.)
