I tried this and I can tell you that a Wiki is not the right format for a 
book. While it lowers the entrance points, it is far too simplistic. I 
eventually changed my master to LaTeX, where I can add as much meta-data and 
other markup (especially for an index, which is crucial) easily and then I 
try to create Wiki-friendly STX files from that. 

When people change things in the Wiki, I use the diffs to update the masters. 
This turned out to be a very good move, since sometimes the corrections 
change the meaning of what I intended to say. 

Additionally, I can now always create a beautiful PDF in less than a minute.
