I would like to use MediaWiki as the back-end content management system for a corporate site, and have a simple page-renderer of some sort which would handle the front-end. Basically this would be a stripped-down fork of MW which would not have editing or user account features but would simply serve the content. I know I can do this by configuring a standard copy of MW to disallow editing and such, but I think that a stand-alone product would be much faster and more secure and efficient.
In the setup I envision, www.example.com would serve the content, and edit.example.com would serve the standard MW interface. The "edit" subdomain would only be visible to people inside my corporate network.
You can do pretty much all of this (except editing) by writing a front-end that uses the API as a back-end. See also [[mw:API]]
