It's possible to do more than that. It's possible for users to create pages
using preformated templates and forms.

For example: If a user wishes to include some sort of tutorial in the wiki,
he/she could only fill a form in a page. Once he/she clicks in "Save"
buttom, the corresponding page is created, automaticaly categorized and
displayed in another page containing a preformated semantic search that
shows all related documents together. Without the need to edit pages and
pages of references.
