Very few articles require a page's worth of

True. Although as a caveat remember that people aren't going to be
publishing/printing a bunch of articles that are stubby or immature.
The best articles, and the ones most like to be printed and
distributed off of Wikipedia will likely be the ones that the most
hands have touched. We aren't interested in the average case of all
articles. A better metric would be the average number of edits from
among the various good or featured articles, since these are the
articles that people are going to want to print/distribute.
