Wave has some great features for those of us that edit Wikipedia, but
we're talking about people reading it. The only way to edit it is via
a live internet connection, I can't see anything else working unless
we get some vastly improved edit conflict handling. All people reading
Wikipedia need is a plain HTML file per article, nothing more.
