On the contrary, every writer I know wants to be constantly tinkering with
their documents. And tinkering with documents is generally a good thing as
it allows for error correction, clarification, addition of useful material.
If people are reluctant to do it it is because it is so costly and so hard
to manage at the document level. This is one of the great advantages of
content management systems over document management systems. Content
management systems let you tinker to your heart's content with very little
cost or management overhead.
