Putting aside all doctrinal formulations / preference, and concentrating on practices, would allow new comers to get a taste of Buddhism from within each group's frame of reference, and then decide which path they would like to explore further. A taste of individual experience, according to the practice style of each group, could be each individuals practical take away from the practice wiki. This could then lead to contacting the various groups / lineage holders - taking transmission, as applicable, memorizing the Tripitaka, Mahayana Sutras, Kangyur etc. and going to retreats and seminars for a few lifetimes.
Yea, I like this idea. Something like Yudron's post about The Nyingma.
