IMHO the burden of reporting changes should be on the people who
plan and implement the changes, not necessarily on the people
who document them (who may or not know about the changes).

It depends on who your "document owners" are. How well informed
are they about ongoing changes to the systems they are
documenting? Are they really in a position to know if their old
documents are still current?

Would you require them to do a regression test of the entire
document twice per year?
