I'd really like to see the arbitrary feature sets of Pages vs. Posts  
go away and allow us to decide which Pages can be Tagged, which Posts  
can be assigned to the menu structure, etc.

Actually, allowing for custom post types where each post type can  
choose which features it supports it what we really need.

Sorry, compared to WordPress, MediaWiki is a joke.  I've worked with  
it and it's a nightmare. It's not a valid solution for a business  
website.  Never again.
