By Data Wiki I also imply the ability to read and write data (in triple 
form re. Linked Data variety) to and from  Addresses (URLs) where WebID 
delivers:

1. Verifiable Identity
2. ACL functionality that leverages Trust Semantics .

Thus, like Wikipedia, folks create data at will and naturally debate 
controversial items. But unlike Wikipedia this isn't about blurb, 
solely. It's about raw data and the zeitgeist around each data object. 
All of this make conflict resolution somewhat easier to handle, at least 
relative to Wikipedia, mailing lists, and other realms with 
discussion/conversation dimensions.
