> Karl's feedback to think about wikipedia isn't of much help to me. His feedback that he anticipates people to take ownership of content is of some help, assuming people who translate a page will "watch" that page for changes and apply changes to translations. Is this a fair characterization?

nope, I expect and I think it will be good that people will make these evolve in a way that we do not expect. Right now we see it as an official English source and translation of the English source in different languages.

What I expect in a multilingual wiki (such as wikipedia) is that people evolve the page on their own will diverging, refactoring, reorganizing their own way the content. Basically after a few months or years, there will be no identity in between pages on the same topic. 

I know it is difficult to imagine when we are used to a controlled environment, but I think there is an intrinsic benefit in people handling the content the way they want. 

These wiki pages are not specifications :)
