Hello Leonard,

for KDE we did implement a (mostly) responsive layout for our main wikis. See 
e.g. userbase.kde.org
The theme is a customized version of the well known Bootstrap CSS framework 
(http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/ ) and ships most necessary parts for 
Special pages don't really introduce a problem as far as i could see. Problems 
arise when something outputs a hardcoded pixel value on table cells or when 
someone thinks a table with >5 columns is a clever idea :) This does only 
count for the content though.
But as far as i can tell, the core mediawiki only produces tables with an 
inline value of width=100% at worst, which is fine with most standard grid 
based layouts.
