I've created that category in order to identify pages that need revision,
not only UX related pages. As soon as they are revised that category must
be removed from the pages. There are many new pages in the wiki.
Categorizing old unrevised pages in Category:Outdated makes it easier to
search for such pages and to have a good idea on how many they are and what
are their contents.

I don't have an closed opinion about this issue. I am more familiar with
Mediawiki, but I can learn how to use Cwiki too. No problem from my side.
