Depending on your use case there are also free options like Wikia and other
non-profit options without ads. Free shared hosting is not automatically going
to be more reputable than free VM hosting, nor do I see systematic differences
in payment methods.

You are free to work on MediaWiki on shared hosting of course. All I'm saying
is that there are few remaining reasons for us to

- spend major resources on shared hosting support, and 
- let it hold back our architectural development at the expense of security,
performance and maintainability
