[development] Content Type - wiki

In discussion of using Drupal for CMS elsewhere, I had a brainy idea as 
someone objected that Drupal didn't supply a wiki.  Thinking out the 
idea I suggested that perhaps a content type named wiki could be 
created where revisions are set and the content is published but not 
promoted where any authenticated user could edit the content.  A menu 
block named Wiki could be created to associate the nodes to.  A 
taxonomy list could be created to help find the wiki content.  Let's 
see I would need a wiki content filter to apply to WikiWiki words.

What am I missing?  Perhaps a theme to separate the main content from 
the comments in a tabbed display similar to MediaWiki.  What else?

P.S.: I know I can use third party software with Drupal, I'm trying to 
think through this simplistic idea.
