Not at all hard -- at the moment, while knowledge of the wiki is 
limited to members of this list, we're allowing anyone who wants to 
sign up as a contributor:

If it continues to grow to the point where we observe "bad" 
contributor behaviour, then we'll tighten up on things.

What we've tried to do so far is to create "rigidly defined areas of 
doubt and uncertainty" (in the words of Douglas Adams) -- each work 
has a factual area and a separate interpretative area. Of course this 
is all up for grabs as the consensus of users evolves, but hopefully 
it's a workable starting situation.
