That is exactly what it is.

This was something I picked up from an infra@ mail.  Though I think it 
may no longer be an issue.

What I meant was, users are not directed to the wiki pages as your or I 
would edit, they are sent to exported HTML files which would mean faster 
access, and better caching.  With other options like being usable 
(possibly) with a docs build process somehow, so if wiki pages are ever 
promoted to the official docs we could have a simple process.
