One really nice feature of a wiki is discussion pages. Specifically, we 
could allocate an area for proposing and discussing new OEIS projects. 
I'm sure we could propose many improvements. For a start:

- Math expression standardization/editing/rendering.

- Automated submission standards checking.

- Redundancy elimination. e.g, create b-files for all sequences, and use 
the b-file as sequence source, and generating the %STUO lines and list 
view from the b-file.

- Or, dare we say it, put the database in a database.

- Independent Wiki pages for terminology, extended comments, etc.

Lots of ideas to explore.
