Just so there is no misunderstanding, Privatemusings is aware of the
proposals process.

If we did have the ability for non-members to edit the wiki, the
policies for editing it would need to be public.

A separate wiki has some advantages.

Another option is for non-members to be restricted to talk pages on
the main wiki.  This means they cant edit pages, but they can initiate
and participate in discussions about them.  Talk pages shouldn't
contain anything official.
A template like {{editrequested}} could be used to alert members to
suggestions made by non-members.

There are a lot of options here.
