I agree with going to straight XML.  One of the "gotcha's" that I found
with extracting the data from the WIKI is that it does not extract
warnings, cautions and notes.  As such it required manual intervention.

I am not sure if anyone is willing to move away from the WIKI but Drupal
has a module that allows native XML and rendering via a stylesheet.  I
am using it with a modified version of Docbook and XSLT.  It works great.
