I already talked with Justin about that. Making the wiki read-only for
unregistered users is IMO a must-have today. The amount of spam hitting
the wiki day by day is too high. Deleting spam takes more time that
updating the real content :)
If somebody is willing to contribute to the handbook, he can create an
account and do some work. Yes, we could loose some minor changes from
unregistered users but getting rid of the spam problem is worth loosing
these minor changes.
