I'm definitely not looking for a super secure access-controlled 
environment.  I'm building a public web page with multiple editors, and 
want to prevent those editors from accidentally or intentionally 
overwriting portions of the site they aren't responsible for.  The Wiki 
platform is perfect for what we want, with an extension like 
PageSecurity (which unfortunately is not available for 1.9 yet) or Group 
Based Access Control (which I'm looking at now) to provide basic editing 

I'm definitely learning a lot from this debate - thanks for the info!
