Thanks, John.  I appreciate the tip and the note to search.

I just looked at and I see two possible objections: a) it is a protected page and not changeable by just anyone, so who would change this page?, and b) it covers many topics and my hope was to focus on just the Guide updates as they were being pre-viewed.

The page Derek pointed you at is the wiki's start page, so of course it's protected. There are lots of editable pages in the wiki -- otherwise it wouldn't be a wiki, would it? Searching for "Guide" brings up 6 pages of "Concept Guide draft/Foo" from 2006, probably the last effort like yours, and which is an overview page. I think you can probably take those over and do what you will with them.
