If it becomes outdated, then the applicant has to update it if the AM ask,
that's not too much to ask IMO.

They could exagerate right now already by saying more than what they did,
but the wiki page is stuff that the AM should then verify ... but at least
it gives you input data for the FD when you have to assign the applicant
to an AM (or to put him on hold because he hasn't contributed enough yet).
