I agree. I have most of my fields in my PmWiki farm set up without WikiWord 
links. On the one that does use WikiWords I always end up having to insert 
backticks to "unlink" words like VOBs - an example of an item I was writing 
about yesterday. Many backticks later, I resolved to convert that field to 
no WikiWords too! It is just less work and learning to [[define free 
links]] is pretty simple.
