Here are my 2 cents ;-)

IMHO that's where a wiki can help a lot: collaborating on writing and 
refining use-cases or specs (few documents, many tracable authors, instant 
summary) instead of "talking" about them by email (many documents, hard to 
summarize). A wiki has a lot in common with a whiteboard or wall of paper 
which is known to be one of the best ways of collaborating on designs.

There is some content about blocks at, might be out of sync with 
the current concept but I think it shows how powerful 2-3 wiki pages can be 
in summarizing/refining concepts.
