I'll tell you explicitly. Go ahead. It's a wiki! If anyone doesn't
like your change, they can easily see the history and revert it. Or
just clean up your change however they like. That's what makes the
wiki so powerful.
If they didn't want you to edit it, I'm pretty sure they could lock it
down so that you can't. The fact that they haven't seems to mean they
aren't worried "regular" users might edit it.
