I don't know the history of mediawiki, but don't forget
there are pages/sub pages (and I agree they must be very
strongly related to be usefull), but also categories/sub

and that can accomodate many categorisation kind (one page
can have more than one category). This is also very powerfull.

However, the controversy comes probably from the fact than
mediawiki is principally aimed to wikipedia, but is so good
that many others uses are now frequent :-)
