Hi, adding to the discussion:

would you not name it
- virtualbox-host-modules (now virtualbox-modules)
- virtualbox-guest-modules (now virtualbox-archlinux-modules)

for the wiki, is it appropriate to change the current virtualbox page or 
will you create another

and might it not be easier if you had 2 main items:
1) virtualbox host
     1) how to install
     2) modules in rc.conf, systemd stuff
     3) usage
2) archlinux virtualbox guest
     1) how to install
     2) modules in rc.conf, systemd
     3) usage

if you might create a new virtualbox page, i'm willing to help, just let 
the candidates for helping know which sections to fill.
