Allow users to indicate authoritative users. When accessing an
article, the changes made since that authority last edited the
page (major edits only?) in an unobtrusive way (1). For
instance, if the last time the authoritative author editted "the
sky is blue" but changes since then have changed it to "the sky
is green" the changed text would be in red.
Users would overtime build up a list of trusted authors which
they could share with other users (2).
The benefit would be each person's list of trusted authors (1
from above) or users whom they trust indirectly (2 from above)
would reflect their choice, and not some central authority.
Sort of a web of trust from encryption software.
This would probably be too much load for Wikipedia, but I could
see value in a corporate or smaller environment.
Wait for stable versions.
