Should I enable Wiki links on this Weblog?

Rich Schwartz posted a wish list, but not on his weblog.  Instead, he posted in the Business Partner forum, so I can't link to it.  Since he didn't post it himself, I'll refrain for the moment and see if he wants to.  The one part I do want to mention is the goal of having Wiki links in Notes.

I don't know a whole lot about Wiki links, except what I have just read on page such as this one, but they sound a whole lot like the SmartRefs technology we have in our Midas Rich Text LSX, plus or minus a few features.  I am considering adding the SmartRefs logic, as I have considered since early on.  What has changed is that I may use the Wiki Links logic to inspire me.  More later on this, but feel free to post any suggestions.

I recently added something like this to the BlogSphere template with a feature I called HotText. The blog owner can produce a list of words and corosponding links and when a new Blog Entry is made the system will auto convert the words it finds into the links. It works great for Plain Text entries but Richtext entries sometimes get skipped.

It's a great addition to any blog template as it saves so much time when your writing entries.
