You just don't get it.
The idea is not to force the developers to work inside the box you want
them to work on, it is to collaborate and use tools that enable
developers to work inside the box *they* want to work in, while still
producing something *everyone* can use.

We are supposed to be encouraging developers and contributors.
Constantly putting roadblocks in their way does *not* do this. 
Do you really think the reason our docs aren't good is because we don't
have enough process?
Or that we don't mandate enough contribution to them?

If you can't see this isn't the real root cause of the problem, there is
simply no point in continuing this discussion, and i'll go my way and
stop contributing to docs except as i'm required to as part of patches,
and happily stop maintaining tools like the wiki that everyone but you
seems to find useful.
