"Plus ça change" versus "nous avons changé tout celà", IOW. Amateurs can draft encyclopedic pages with greater ease than legalistic documents. All true, but this comes with the territory. 

I think the right conclusion is not so much that the way things are done just fundamentally sucks; but that this issue, of accessibility of 'policy', preferentially will put off those who want solid understanding of everything involved in editing. I have never felt I understood all aspects of enWP.
