Willing (or perhaps coerced) humans can be trained.
The way we approached the problem of lots of people contributing intranet pages was to use Front Page. We had each department designate some small finite number of "publishers," and those individuals did not get their directory permissions turned on until they sat through a brief orientation/training session (less than an hour) in which they learned the basics of using the templates we provided for them.
This may not be the best of all possible systems, but it was relatively easy to set up and more or less works as designed.
