Scenario 1A,B,C: Hire a contract copy editor by the project, borrow
a highly-competent secretary, co-opt other internal resources
(marketing?) to edit. Documentation cost rises slightly if at all.

Scenario 2A: Group of four writers, each spending a bunch of their
time peer editing. Replace one writer with an editor. Cost
decreases.
