Not only for the possible loss of information during conversion, but also since wiki engines seem to either evolve and break backwards compatibility which requires gardening or they grow security issues (forcing you to migrate), which is never a problem with HTML.
You are right, that's it is a bad idea to put html page in the wiki. I done this only, because it's the fastest way ;)

I will try to convert them into Wiki-Markup... One of my projects is: https://github.com/jedie/python-creole that can convert html into creole markup. It's easy to write a MediaWiki output, too ;)

But the question is, if this is desired.

Here, I disagree with you. Most pages in the wiki are some kind of "static"... How often are they changed?!?
Generally I find the cooperation concept, very good.
