This also raises the question of license. Our current documentation
mostly uses the CC-BY-SA license, while the unoffical wiki adds a
non-commercial restriction. By choosing one license over the other
we will make copy-pasting content from the source that has the other
license, as far as I can see, illegal. I would say that interchange
possibilities with our existing official documentation has priority.

I don't think that in itself is a very good argument.

I think we should consider the pros and cons of both these solutions.
Does anyone have any links to the considerations that led these
distros to make the choice they did?

I agree this is a good idea.
