It looks promising for what the Wiki reorganizers are currently trying to do.
"While articles in MediaWiki are just plain texts, SMW allows users to
add structured data, comparable to the data one would usually store in
a database. SMW uses the fact that such data is already contained in
many articles: users just need to "mark" the according places so that
the system can extract the relevant data without "understanding" the
rest of the text. With this information, SMW can help to search,
organise, browse, evaluate, and share the wiki's content."
It would be particularly good if integrated into the templates.
