I'd flip the order and make it (alphabetically):

- ubuntu-doc-admin-wiki
- ubuntu-doc-admin-system
- ubuntu-doc-contributor

Everyone should be able to contribute to all documentation, but only
some people may "administer" the documentation.

Yes!! Plan first, code second! How can you write the code without
knowing how people ought to participate on the team? The plan needs to
include upstream and translations and all of the ways that we can
contribute to a positive user experience through documentation. Right
now we have very strong duct tape and a few committed people that apply
more duct tape as needed. It has held together pretty well, but now it's
time to think WAY bigger!
