I can see no objections for new Wikis to be created using Mediawiki
(if those sufficiently familiar with Wikis believe that Mediawiki
is currently the best available : I am completely infamiliar with
them, so not in a position to offer an opinion), but I can see
no benefit whatsoever in converting existing W3C Wikis if all
information (such as user accounts, modification histories, etc)
cannot automatically be carried across.  Thus I am /opposed/
to the HTML 5 Wiki being so converted unless and until there
can be a guarantee that all information can and will be
automatically carried across.
