AMS LaTeX, as per:

Shall we try to enumerate the alternatives and tradeoffs?   

Option 1:
    Editors produce W3C-style HTML documents however they like,
    and mail them to the WG any time they re-stablize.  Only editor can
    make changes.

Option 2:
    Editors produce W3C-style HTML documents however they like and have
    CVS access at w3.org, so they can put versions up on the website.
    Revision history is kept in CVS.

Option 3:
    Editors use mediawiki pages which can be programmatically
    assembled/reformated into W3C style.  Anyone in WG *can* change a
    document; social conventions control who does.   Revision history is
    kept by the wiki.

...?

I think editors should have a lot more say in this than the
WG-in-general, but maybe the WG has some requirements on the process as
well.
