Perhaps that is true in some areas, but the articles I
wikipedia (on mathematics) are almost completely written by registered
editors. If you'd like to explain what criteria you use for "largely
written", I would be interested in testing whether articles in various
fields meet that criteria.
Aaron Swartz found that most of the text is written by IPs, with the
regulars then formatting the heck out of it.
(I looked just now and found his initial 2006 post on the topic, but
I'm pretty sure he wrote a more detailed assessment.)
