Yes I do it everyday at my JOB, setting the 'Standard' formatting style once and any submissions need to follow that or they are not even looked at. Problem solved. You are not coding the Mona Lisa one pixel at a time, you are cleaning up /updating crafting type lists that fall into a very standard format in the code.
I'm not saying you will bat 1000 every time, but for every 100 "enthusiastic amateur volunteers" you have you will have a few people who actually know what they are doing and I am sure they can do what is needed, fo free. In the end the player wins.
