What are the main problems with this - especially if a "sighted pages"
approach is taken?  I would think the main issue with a wiki would be
officialness and the proposed approach could potentially address that.

Obviously an issue with moving to a wiki would be the mass of
documentation already out there, but the logical approach would be to
move it over time, and perhaps cite the existing docs in the wiki
where possible.  Then if documentation gets stale it could be
re-written and "approved."

Just because the wiki isn't CURRENTLY there to replace official docs
doesn't mean that we shouldn't think about whether it one day could.
