Yes, the amount of peer review is directly related to the type and desires of
the participants. Some mature Wiki's are basically highly structured web sites
that have been evolved by the users -- others don't fair as well.

Let's see, if I tick off my elements of good web design:
1) has good content :)
2) loads quickly :)
3) pages chunked to manageable amount of content :)
4) page resizing to browser :)
I think the boost website designers have done a pretty good job.
