I guess I don't see how this in any way helps that goal.  How is a 
"terms of service" any more useful than the existing Wikipedia 
policies?  We can already ban anyone we want and ask them not to come 
back, and don't need any sort of legal terms of service to do that.  We 
aren't offering a paid service, so don't need a legal terms of service 
as a way of terminating anyone's right to use our service, since we 
never sold any such right in the first place.
