I think the lessons of wikipedia is precisely that you *don't* want to add
such barriers. You want to let people add stuff pretty much freely. That
encourages people to get involved and put up information. 

Experience shows that most people are cooperative most of the time. If there
turns out to be particularly contentious areas you can restrict access to
those areas to authorized users or ban ip addresses.

I've already put some stuff up there. I didn't plan to, but when I was
browsing I had ideas and the ability to add content was just one click away...
