Question -slash- Proposed FAQ: Shared journals again.

Would it be a good idea, in your opinion, to have an FAQ on shared journals? Apparently there used to be FAQ's, but they were eliminated when Brad said that shared journals might be phased out. Now that he's said the exact opposite (if you want I can find the link, but please, please don't make me), it seems like it might be a good idea to document them again, if only in limited fashion.

I have two thoughts for how this might work:
(1) Maybe just have one FAQ, "What are shared journals, and how do I maintain and use them?" For a lot of things, this FAQ could link to the community FAQ's, because the two are similar in a lot of respects.
(2) Maybe change the communities category to "Communities and Shared Journals." Then, for FAQ's that apply to both, rename ". . . community?" to ". . . community or shared journal?" For that matter, even if the FAQ doesn't really apply to both, it can be edited to cover both (a la "For a community: [...] For a shared journal:")

If people support this, I would be more than happy to write a draft, though I would probably need some help at some point, as all of my knowledge comes from reading; I've never actually used a shared journal myself.

Anyway, thanks in advance for your comments!
