Comment (by coffee2code):

 There is now a "Handbook Editor" role. That role is solely geared towards
 editing just the handbooks. Differing from the original request, they
 *can* create new handbook pages, but cannot publish them. This seems
 reasonable and is easier to implement. They can upload media as well
 (which they probably need to do in the course of editing a handbook page
 -- namely to add images).

 I also restricted handbook access to just administrators, editors, and
 handbook editors.

 The auto-expire aspect was not implemented and should be requested in a
 separate ticket if still desired. One thing to clarify in that ticket
 would be what is considered inactivity (editing handbook pages, visiting
 the backend of the site)? Will handbook pages go through enough regular
 updating to keep everyone "active"?
