Editing the wiki and its content is not reserved to a small part of  
the groups or after consensus. Editing a wiki is a collective work,  
where everyone can participate. That is exactly what a wiki is for.  
Drafting ideas, pushing them, balancing them, expressing diversity of  
opinions.

Ian Hickson edited the wiki in good faith and as such his input is  
valuable. He expressed an idea. You have the right under his  
contribution to add your own comments on the wiki, with keep in mind  
about how to make further progress on the idea positively.

Once a certain amount of consensus is reached on a wiki, the content  
might eventually be transfered to a fixed document with its own dated  
URI.
