Your post actually started me thinking on this. A Freenet (for
encryption and to avoid a [[:en:trusted client]] problem) or
BitTorrent (for convenient distribution with a program lots of people
have) method of distributing Wikipedia. A peer-to-peer network with
WMF as the only body supplying content files. The downsides that
spring to mind are (a) doesn't work through any old web browser (this
is a big one) (b) trusted client problem (how to ensure rogue clients
don't redistribute corrupted content in our name).
