No, that would be a very bad solution. It would
require that everyone
who works on MediaWiki has to learn that domain-specific language, which
would result in less people being able to work on MediaWiki.
This is not inherently different from people having to learn what
MediaWiki classes and so on do. If it's a well-designed language, it
will be as easy for people to pick up as alternative ways of writing
the same info.
It is, as there exist various database abstraction classes, somewhat similar
to each other, a lot of people have worked with. Add to that the benefits of
your editor not able to highlight the code and no way to immediately see
syntax errors and similar.
