though i'm not a dev, i have 2 thoughts on that too.

I think that's a great idea, while time is passing by, programs change
and i often found outdated documentation which is not tagged as such.

I think a typo-fixing-only period will stop people adding new topics,
and in the worst case forgetting about them.
IMHO it would be a nice idea to fork the Wiki/doc at that time, so new
pages can be created without interfering with the
"documentation-feature-freeze" for the soon to be released version.
