The http://oeis.org/wiki/ tree is for all the things that are not sequences.

An earlier plan was to use it for sequences too, but we
abandoned that because it was too hard to customize
with OEIS-specific semantics.  The pages that are being
deleted are obsolete: use http://oeis.org/A000027 instead
of http://oeis.org/wiki/A000027.

Yes.  They'll all be gone after the weekend, but
deleting 200,000 pages is a pretty expensive
operation for the wiki software, so it's taking a while.
There's nothing special about the ones that are left
except that they are further down the list.
