It could be used that way, but I'm planning to add a comment/talkback
feature directly into the wiki.  The biggest difference is that one might
want different levels of authorization for "edit page" and "comment".

Well, I think it needs to be somewhat "automatic" in that authors shouldn't
*have* to write additional markup in order to enable section edits.
And of course it'd be configurable so that an administrator could choose
what sequences delimit a section--I guess I'm asking for what a good
default would be.

Yup, this is what I'm heading towards.  I'm trying to decide if comments/
blog replies from the masses should be appended to existing pages, or if
they should create trails of separate pages.
