I need to clarify this, because I'm sure what you meant by "oversee" is
not exactly what I see happening. As I understand it, Wikipedia
attracts contributions from experts in a wide variety of subjects.
They also set very high standards for contributions, explained in
elaborate detail at their site (e.g.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Reliable_source_examples ). So
in a sense, the missing "oversight" that you think is so vital is
already there. I would challenge, though, that "preeminence" is a
necessary qualification for making submissions, so long as a high
standard for submissions is adhered to.
