Not to argue, because I really don't care either way, but oeis.org database
searches need not be affected since that database would not be changed,
except to add a link to a corresponding wiki page. Of course, people could
indeed search the corresponding wiki pages if they want to, but that seems
like it would not be useful at all.

The wiki pages might be very nice to have at least for the core sequences,
and there are many other interesting sequences with formulas in them that
mught be easier to read when displayed after being written in LaTeX. I took
A212329 as a simple example to illustrate such a page. The name of the page
is LA212329, and you can see what it might look like at

https://oeis.org/wiki/User:L._Edson_Jeffery/LA212329

So, after making the wiki page LAxxxxxx corresponding to Axxxxxx, a link to
it could just be added to Axxxxxx with no other modifications to Axxxxxx
being necessary.
