Hello Henry

I'd like to clarify a few things to ensure we are on the same page.

The way your public-xg-webid@w3.org mailing list is set up is that the  
subscribers (about 60) are a mix of the actual participants (38) of the XG  
[1] and additional people who subscribed manually.

[1] https://www.w3.org/2000/09/dbwg/details?group=46065&public=1

The participatns of the XG have default write access to the Wiki.

The other people would need to get a W3C account if they don't already, in  
order to have write access to the wiki.

The reason I'm clarifying this, is that I feel what you are requesting is  
that the wiki setup recognizes when a user belongs to the mailing list and  
therefore should be able to write on the wiki.

Please, let me know if we are on the same page, and I'll send a request  
that the wiki be opened to any user with a W3C account. (There isn't a  
finer granularity, unfortunately).
