I think that something like this ought to go very near the top
of the Features page.  I think that any "Features" page necessarily
contains some subjectivity; and this is indeed part of the
design.  Indeed, the PmWikiPhilosophy *is* one of PmWiki's features
and is frequently mentioned in third-party reviews of PmWiki.
