I think there is room (and raison d'etre) for both. A wiki is a
convenient playground for new content to be "prototyped". Once stable,
it can be migrated to a more curated model. But shutting down a wiki is
certainly no way to grow a community (if growing a community is what
Boost wants - sometimes I'm in serious doubt about that).
