Which will bring them the same text with mistakes and omissions that
we see now.  E.g., I see someone's contribution without the
paperwork-exempt tag -- how do I know if that person has an
assignment, and I'm just missing it somehow, or she doesn't and I;m
looking at someone's omission?  Same with other blunders.

Who needs a history record one cannot trust?  It's worse than having
no record at all.
