Two points come into my mind about expert rating:

IIRC language was part of the rating, right? This would discriminate against those who are not so familiar with english language.

Isn't that a good thing? If an article is in poor English, the English should be improved. But even in a conventional review process a reviewer can suggest improvements to the language, and if this is likely to be a common issue for us we could always ask reviewers to pay special attention to this aspect and request that they offer help if possible.

Updating articles is a useful thing, but this should only happen by releasing new versions with _new permanent URLs_. Then releasing new versions would happen outside the ongoing review process by own responsibility of the auhor. Authors could get an account on the CMS to do that.

Maybe the usual software process of a default 'current' version and numbered historic versions (eg /catb, /catb/1.0, /catb/1.01, /catb/2.0 where /catb points (for now) at /catb/2.0. All the numbered urls then have a fixed referent; the un-numbered one is guaranteed to exist, but has no stable referent.
