For that, also some "user contributed comments", like the 
PHP-Documentation has them, are IMO enough and easier to incorporate 
into the main documentation.
The problem with a wiki is, that there's no instance who's proofreading 
the documentation and giving it a "common touch", so that it doesn't 
look like a lot of information put together by a lot of people, but like 
/the/ Scribus Documentation. You see it with wikipedia. There's no 
common standard for all articles, not every article has the same high 
quality and you can be sure that all dates and facts are 100 % correct.
So I don't like the idea at all of making the whole documentation a wiki.
