I don't think there's any problem with wikifying what's released now,
but I've forwarded your inquiry to them as well. I think the only
concern is that the current analysis is still preliminary so shouldn't
be considered "the results", but a first overview of some selected
data. More analysis will follow incrementally, followed by a research
paper. After that the team will carefully anonymize the data and make
it available under CC-BY. My understanding is that the timeline is
roughly as follows:

April to July: incremental publication of preliminary analysis
Summer: publication of research paper
Fall: publication of anonymized data under CC-BY.
