That general direction makes sense, but I'm not sure if the Wiki is
something that this will work for. I fear that it could become
something like the TODO list page: a page that contains theoretically
accurate information, but isn't very helpful. The TODO list needs to
be heavily pruned, but that seems like something that will never

A centralized location for performance tips will probably only work
well if there are still high standards that are actively enforced.
There still needs to be tight editorial control.

I think there's ways to significantly restrict who can edit a page, so this could probably still be done via the wiki. IMO we should also be encouraging users to test various tips and provide feedback, so maybe a wiki page with a big fat request at the top asking users to submit any feedback about the page to -performance.
