To make it short: I'd like to see all of this happen, and this "program"
matches quite closely what I had myself in mind for the future of Trac's
wiki. It will probably take us a few more release to get there, but I
believe it's all possible to achieve.
First, 0.13 will hopefully feature a rewrite of the wiki parser that
will make authoring content more "robust" (less quirks, more expressive
power). Some advanced operations like (batch) copy are also on my list.
I have also laid out a plan for supporting transclusion and other
powerful mechanisms inspired from MediaWiki (see
which I believe will also provide some of the infrastructure support for
composing complex documents from individual pages. Finally, progress on
the GenericTrac model will bring the addition of wiki properties, as
well as the possibility for plugins to define new resources easily (e.g.
"documents"). In the same vein, a generalization of ticket workflow to
e.g. wiki workflow should also be possible, longer term.

Well, the table of contents for the TracGuide is generated by a macro,
which contains a hard coded list of pages, and the rest of the
automation indeed relies on me ;-)

Sorry, for /that/ I can't help you much ;-)
Do not think that these characteristics correspond to a Document
I'm working on new trac plugin  for integrate Trac with DM (p.e. Alfresco).
