Searching for articles by typing a question.
A few years ago Brockhaus Enzyklopädie digital provided a new search function which could answer questions like: "Why is the sky blue?" by linking to an article. To get an article not by typing the lemma, but by typing your question would make using wikipedia easier. I guess that could only work with larger wikipedias (100.000+ articles?). This is not a Semantic wiki-web proposal, the type of knowledge you need is something that the program en:ELIZA provides (en:Natural language processing, en:Named entity recognition). For example, the answer to "Why is the sky blue?" is the page "sky". The answer to "What is 4 plus 6?" is "Number" not "ten".
