Mediawiki/Wikipedia is not special from a browser history perspective because
it's addictive. It's not special from a browser history perspective because it
has an xkcd comic about it. It's just a website, and one that is critically
behind the times in many respects. It definitely isn't special enough in any
way that it needs its own browser history standard, different from the rest of
the web.

People visit a lot of pages? Big deal, same thing goes for google and many
other high pageview sites and you don't see them messing with the browser
history based on an assumption of what people care about the most. If you want
to clean people's browser history automatically based on their taste, make a
browser extension.

Regardless of how you slice it, the back button is linear and the browser
history isn't hierarchical. You want something more out of the browser history,
and it doesn't exist.
