Well, here's a little magic that could be made to happen:
http://semantic-mediawiki.org/wiki/Semantic_MediaWiki
"Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is a free extension of MediaWiki – the 
wiki-system powering Wikipedia – that helps to search, organise, tag, 
browse, evaluate, and share the wiki's content. While traditional wikis 
contain only text which computers can neither understand nor evaluate, 
SMW adds semantic annotations that let you easily publish Semantic Web 
content, and allow the wiki to function as a collaborative database."

Note: " allow the wiki to function as a collaborative database".
This is what we have been wanting for half a decade.

Are you owner and/or administrator of Appropedia, Chris?

I hope you will contribute to our work at permaculture.info.
