Yes, it does not change any behavior, just adds more options.

Oh really, that'd be great!
I haven't yet had the time to install the Semantic MediaWiki extension,
but I have taken a quick look at their website.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find anything like that yet -
could you point me in the right direction here?
From what I understand, SMW 'only' adds some more advanced tags to the
MW syntax - so it doesn't change anything that might confuse basic
users, correct? They could still use the wiki as they always have, while
advanced users could get their hands dirty with the geeky stuff!?

Semantic MediaWiki could be used to do this.
