I tend to disagree. Seen the github "wiki" fail to serve it's purpose for 
several highly motivated people who refuse to learn git just to contribute to 
a documentation - incl myself. Registering with git is either more complicated 
(ssh pubkey, iirc that's what github requires, as a second step) than 
registering with generic wiki, or ideally there's no difference. Operation of 
git (incl providng such ssh pubkey) is simple for coders who are used to it, 
*and for spam scripts* - it's a PITA for those who don't regularly use git and 
are just interested in editing the wiki.

Bottom line: true wiki please! with edit permission only for registered users. 
Apply usual safeguards (email verification) for registration and get rid of all 
spam that way.
