My lack of response so far does not signify a lack of interest. I’m quite fascinated by what you are doing. Whether or not it works in the end, it’s a brilliant attempt and if successful could elevate PmWiki significantly above the other wikis that I see around. (Not that PmWiki isn’t already better for many purposes.)

I’m experimentally using PmForm and page text variables to structure both the acquisition and presentation of content wherever possible. Most wikis use forms just for editing, but I’m using them also for presentation. Your architecture is more appropriate for a general PmWiki community. My architecture OTOH lets me provide context sensitive help when editing, and makes global changes easy. 

If I could integrate your solution with mine, or find another way to make it easier for users to enter content, I’d be very excited. So I’m keeping an eye on what you are doing in case it becomes possible to incorporate your approach with my architecture. So far, it doesn’t fit.
