I agree with the Air Force here; while this might not be 100% conform to
Cunningham's original idea, there's definitely a gray zone in between
the open wiki principle and CMS-style access control.
That's the beauty of wikis (and MW in particular); they can be adapted
to almost any situation.

Just my two cents... (translation: Please, Rob, don't hurt me!)
