I should mention that Simon Michael's MailWiki tool is incredible for
things like this.  It mails changes in the Wiki (almost, but not
resembling, a unified diff, with the PageChange'd title in the
subject).  It also allows for mail-in appending, which of course is
potentially dangerous, but so is any WWW-based storage of mail.

Intelligent use of mail filtering (which has led to my symbiotic
relationship with emacs and gnus for nearly 6 years now) will reduce
the burden.  It's not perfect, but it's not bad.

I REALLY, but REALLY like using this feature.   And I've been using on
a wiki that I use for "brain dumps" from email... 

It would need a bit more work (semi-validation of "from", etc), but it
is potentially useful in this context.  

I hate firing up a browser to go searching, but I'll do it if
something catches my eye...

See above.  But maybe it still wouldn't be structured enough.
