IMHO, the above idea won't replace the advantages of a real wiki.

I agree. I think the current goal is to use GitHub as a pseudo-wiki.
They'll handle the user accounts and server for us. We get static text
files in the backend, which can be processed in custom ways as needed. But
yes, it's not perfect. There is some extra indirection before you actually
get to edit the file and that's enough of a deterrent if you just wanted to
fix a spelling error. The next step might be to integrate an editor
directly into ocaml.org, with authentication via GitHub or OpenID.
