I don't think any of this is crazy.

 The first idea is similar to the HTML composition GUIs which now seem to be
everywhere.  I'm told it's a pretty complex task to get them to reliably be
both WYSISYG and to maintain syntactically correct markup through multiple
edits, but people are attempting it---with some success for HTML and BBcode.

Could org-syntax be used in a Wiki? I suppose so with some elisp or
scripting infrasturcture.  In fact, such an idea is has potential to help
with other problems as well, such as making simple changes to your
server-stored org-documents when at a non-emacs machine or a simple
web-enabled device like a smartphone.   I imagine that the overhead of
processing org-markup to html via Emacs is high-ish in comparision with
traditonal ways of generating html from other markup languages.   But with
static pages and mostly internal use, that should be no issue.

Look at this link for an example of online PDF generation.  In this case
it's from another lightweight markup language called ReStructured Text, and
uses pdflatex on a server to automatically generate pdf's.


If they can do it.....
