Research talk:Editor classes
Nice project, key finding is the rareness, but value of the power editor 
I think keeping (and getting) these power users is important. Even just for efficiency. Imagine we have to do X amount of work to get a 0-10 editor. Well it takes ~3000 of those lowly editors to equal the impact of one 10,000 class editor.
So just from the nature of efficiency, you ought to be willing to exert 3000X the effort to get a power editor. And probably you can find power editors with a lot less than the 3000X expenditure. But you really need to think differently about going after the cream of the crop. It sure ain't IEP. It may not even be big programs of any sort. But some more narrowcast method that is different from how GEP thinks.
Sorry, if I am not stating this well. But my point is...get power editors! Concentrate on it! If you got 1000 superstar content editors, they could just blow you away with how much they would write and transform the Wiki. So think about how to do that! How can you find those people, attract those people, and make them feel at home.
I would probably differentiate three classes of editors btw within that group: content people, gnomes, and ANI queens (there are only a couple). The first category is the highest priority (just more value, rarer resource). Second is still extremely useful. Third is a waste of time (but rare).
