Mhh.. yes, you're right.

Here is what I read at the bottom of every emacswiki.org page:

  This work is licensed to you under version 2 of the GNU General Public
  License. Alternatively, you may choose to receive this work under any
  other license that grants the right to use, copy, modify, and/or
  distribute the work, as long as that license imposes the restriction
  that derivative works have to grant the same rights and impose the
  same restriction. For example, you may choose to receive this work
  under the GNU Free Documentation License, the CreativeCommons
  ShareAlike License, the XEmacs manual license, or similar licenses.

So this is GPLv2.  Any idea why this isn't GPLv3?

Also, I find the formulation a bit confusing.  Is it the standard
formulation when multi-licensing?  Where can I found an example of a
clear multi-licensing statement?

I've not made up my mind yet, but I would go for something like that:  

  The content of the Worg website is licensed under the CC BY-SA 3.0 and
  the GPLv3 and the GFDL 1.3.  You can choose to receive the content of
  Worg under any of these three licenses.
