This would be the best way as it will significantly reduce the 
processing required when requesting a document from the wiki since the 
wiki does not transform to HTML only to have Forrest transform that to 
XDoc. Better to go from wiki to XDoc.

The wiki plugin uses Chaperon to do the transformations. Their docs are 
pretty good.

Are you sure your match is being executed? It doesn't sound like it.
What do you get if you request /cmspage/start.xml? If the above pipeline 
is executed (as it should) you will get an Doc version of your XMS page.
