Don't confuse Wikipedia's problematic implementation with the underlying 
wiki principle. Wikis can be password-protected, require logins and 
auditing, and so forth.

But a wiki is probably the wrong model in any case. Wikis are designed 
for collaborative editing of unstructured hypertext, while a discography 
is in essence a database with a bit of free-text annotation.

It has been suggested that what is needed for discography is much like 
the IMDB, where all submissions are subject to review before acceptance.
