On the wiki, in the Mechanics section [1]

There is a focus on "Editorial Teams", I would rather focus on Editing Techniques. Or add the two items. Some people prefer to edit alone a specification and submit it to comments. But some specification can be built collectively with the work of the entire group. It really depends on the dynamic of the group and the will to participate.

In the QA WG, in the past, the Specification Guidelines have been partially be written by the full group. This was possible by making a template [2][3] for a very basic unit of content and then by organizing  two persons teams in charge of editing a specific unit with a tight schedule and process. It doesn't mean it can work for all groups but there are editing techniques that the chair can organize.
