If you add reviewing to the publishing workflow, then you don't have to 
worry. It requires some work, similar to approving messages on a moderated 
mailing list, and this task can be assigned to co-admins. It's not that 
much of an effort since wiki publishing generates less traffic than email. 
ZWiki, used on plone.org, has everything required, except for a small 
modification to re-enable workflow publishing.

I intend to be more available and get back to PD.
It'd be a pleasure to talk about Zope if it can be useful.
