I think that the amount of changes that need to be reviewed could be
dramatically reduced if we create some trust management system, for
example we could trust changes made by authorized users. The users
who most often contribute to the Wiki will probably be the same who care
about reviewing changes and they probably won't mind to log in, so their
changes won't have to be reviewed.
