I actually don't think finding good sources or referencing is
particularly hard, it just isn't very well suited to the current wiki

the actual text is two separate steps. Wikis jumble the two very
different steps into one.
I believe it's hard for the "average person". Anyone who hasn't been to
university is pretty unlikely to suddenly develop research skills and the
ability to go to a library and look up journal articles.
