I would object to doing that - we often get submission from companies
that aren't relevant, and currently they never hit the site as they
have to be moderated first. If we allow commercial content to be added
to the wiki, then we have to start proactively policing the wiki. It's
hard enough to keep people moderating reactively in response to emails
sent by the submission forms, let alone having them check the wiki
daily.
