2 years ago, Microsoft introduced the edit button at msn-encarta.
"Edit" is their way of saying "you are allowed to submit suggestions
how to improve the article and you are free to do that be simply
making the suggestion as if this was an edit button".

It would be technically possible (but not entirely logical) to have
the main author of an article work as the person acknowledging the
proposed edit.
