Could the answer be in adding another line just above the save button? 
explaining the idea to the editor and telling him/her that there is a 
conflict of interests and if you wish to add content to the article, add 
it to the talk page instead? and if you have more to say, add a link too.

You don't need super technologies to deliver such a simple message. by 
the way, how could Microsoft's incident be a bad publicity for 
wikipedia? please refer me to the appropriate archived messages if that 
a duplicate question.
