I think that Shaun is proposing something similar to the "User
contributed notes" used by the online PHP documentation [1].

One issue I'd like to pick up on is that people will definitely try to
use this feature to ask for support. First of all, we should design the
system in a such a way as to discourage this. Then, we'd need an easy
way of forwarding support requests to an appropriate mailing
list/forum/etc. I guess GNOME could sign up to Launchpad Answers...
