This is very close to what I've done with MouseSkin. Nearly all aspects of the site's content is defined in wiki pages. It's sometimes a wee bit arcane (as the example with the menu you just posted prior) but it's not really hard to work with. Feel free to check MouseSkin if you want for examples, but also rolling your own is quite fun and instructive.
