Is not this suggestion a variation on rule by consensus? What about objective standards?
Whatever we agree on (consensus) it must be auditable.

The most important metric to me and many editors is
how many quality
articles we're producing. A major reason for Flagged Versions is that
various content experts have told us that this is one thing they need if we
want their help. So, one important metric I'd like to suggest is to survey
and count the number of new editors who say that the new feature is a major
reason they decided to start participating.
Also: note that Wikinews (en:wn at least) really wants sighted/stable
versions displayed by default so that they will make it into
aggregators, specifically Google News.
