I suspect though that this works best were there are a lot of reviewers
/ editors. On the codex there's a fairly small team of admins, and a
few key contributors who may (or may not) desire to review other work.
Also the concept of something being reviewed could discourage small,
I guess what I'm saying is that I am not greatly convinced of the need
to massively change the way Codex works.
Sufficient would, I suspect, be to limit the number of edits a normal
user can make in a specified period. Most spam attacks work because
they blast a load of new pages out automatically in a short time.
Normal users don't do this. So all you really need is a limit on this
sort of thing. The admin team can easily handle small-scale spam.
