I created a page on the wiki to document our wish-list of further 
enhancements to the POV SDL.

http://wiki.povray.org/content/Knowledgebase:Language_Feature_Requests

I added a few items I'd like to see.

I don't think such a list belong into the wiki at all.

Why not? Is information on development not a good choice? Would you 
prefer it tucked away somewhere where no-one can see it?

requested is already implemented

It is not information on development. It is a wish list of things someone or 
some group of users feels might be useful in the future without actually 
having used it. It is no information on development that either will or may 
occur.

It's like a section: Features POV SDL has not compared to other SDL.
So I'd say it's right to be in the wiki. Like a comparison to other products.

Of course, the wiki should not become overcrowded!1

The proper place for a "feature wishlist" is the bugtracking and 
feature-request system on <http://bugs.povray.org>, as that's /the/ 
primary place where the developers will look for them. It's no good to 
have wishlists scattered about however-many places.

BTW, the bugtracker also provides a means for users to vote on bugs or 
features they deem particularly important to address.

The list is not for developers. It's for other users.

Sounds like the right place to me ... if I had a feature request that I
cared about I'd want the developers to know about it. If discussion and
list building is what your aim is, how about
povray.pov4.discussion.general ... are we getting any closer ;-)
