Sounds like an nice idea.

A potential concern for me is that these posts might be of relatively
“low quality” compared to the articles we usually publish (since they’d
be partially generated), and they would also outnumber those articles.
I wonder if this could leave a bad impression when visiting

Or perhaps we just need to display those entries separately from those
that do not have the GWN tag or something?
