What about this flavor:

One person actually owns/operates the entire article.  This person can
sublet pages of the article to someone else, one at a time.  The subletted
pages are locked and only accessible for edit by the person the owner gave
it to, though the owner can read the page.  Then, when the person is done
with the page, they release it back to the owner.  When the article is done,
the owner submits it for approval.

: I think so, but it would be useful to nominate an 'owner' amongst the
