Perhaps a subtle offense would work better than an argument against.

You could point out the logistical problems and suggest ways to deal with
them. For example, you're bound to get conflicting edits and opinions, so
you will have to set up some equitable way to pick the winners without
embroiling everyone in a huge arguement. If you are offering solutions,
you are not resisting. If you make the solution sound like more trouble
than the plan, the boss will probably give the idea up.
