Feel free to write some code that is acceptable to run on core / be
deployed on Drupal.org.
Handbook pages get edited all the time, and it shows up in your
tracker. Until someone puts serious elbow grease into a scalable
solution, it ain't going to happen.

Revisions are already there for all nodes, which you can see if you
are a site maintainer.

If anyone on this here dev list wants to do editing, join the docs
list and ask for site maintainer privs. It helps to have submitted a
couple of handbook pages that appear to be well written.

For further references, see: about a billion past discussions on Docs
list about code improvements that are desired.
