Well wiki has no pages you can turn. So this is the
equivalent to page/chapter break for the web world.
You assume that wiki content is web-oriented, and while that's true,
it's not the best attitude to have - wiki content does not have to be
viewed on a screen at all, it could be printed into a book, or on
t-shirts, or bits of toilet paper.
This is the *point* of semantics, as applied to information - "what I
mean", not "what I look like".
