0, as I think that numbering the pages would make a stronger statement
about a One True Ordering of topics (as opposed to a bunch of
potential orderings whose usefulness depends on where a given person
is starting from) than may be warranted. That said, I have no strong
objections to organizing the material in the form of a book-like thing
if that works for you.

Is there a particular DokuWiki plugin you have in mind?

0; I think this should be evaluated on a page-by-page basis, and I
reiterate my concern expressed above about insisting on a single
narrative flow.
