If you do think the WIKI shall be corrected, just do it following 
instructions here:

Do not hesitate, even if you feel being not smart or confident enough. I 
found myself editing my first WIKI today, as I thought some 
modifications could be made to one WIKI.

 From a post of tomk user:
"The wiki is definitely NOT an "official documentation project" - it is 
created and maintained by the user community, and at any given time, it 
will contain many errors and omissions. These are corrected over time, 
as part of the ongoing review and maintenance process."

So my advise is : go ahead if you feel you are right.
