Question: why does it have to normalise at all?
I do think that the editing environment at Wikipedia means that consistent
non-normalised editing by wikitext users and subsequent normalisation by
anyone using WYSIWYG would be messy and disruptive, but would a change
whereby it more precisely records the wikitext, and then doesn't try and
change it unless that part of the document is edited, be feasible?
Indeed, that's the nicest thing to do.
