A ZWiki as found on the current zope.org is unusable, so I'll presume
you mean an up-to-date ZWiki, which I expect is much nicer.

Agreed.  A WYSIWYG editor doesn't help, and makes the thing more
fragile.  I would hope a plain text editor would still be an option,
even if we get stuck with HTML as the wiki markup (another point of
contention, I suspect).

If we don't have reST, then we haven't made any progress.  Jim said a
few years ago that reST would be the standard for Zope 3
documentation, and few people have really picked up on that.  That's a
shame, because it's so much nicer and more predictable than STX.  (It
also doesn't get the indentation of code fragments wrong.)

These opinions are my own, and have not been filtered through Jim.  :-)
