I think your heart's definitely in the right place, Ankur!  But I'd
worry this page in its current state would quickly grow out of
control, given the number of articles that pop up over even just one
development cycle.

What if the page used a simple queue system?

Each article could include a very small amount of information in a
table:

* Hyperlink to the article

* Comment by someone on the Marketing team who has seen it, noting a
  questionable section

Also, the page would include general guidelines on how to make
corrections.  Once corrections are made, the correcting person could
strike the row from the table, so at any time it only shows the
current state of the queue.
