Probably because they provide their own separate tool for wikis.

I'm not trying to start a troll on anything, but I'm a bit fed up by the
whole hype "all-dynamic-web" tendancy in the IT nowadays. Not everything
must be done dynamically, and there is no need of state-of-the-art
over-expensive servers to run a simple static content with automated
processing upon update. ;)

If one can provide us with a free VPS, it would be the best solution
without any doubt.

I was gonna suggest markdown.tk, but it's taken too... maybe mdwn.tk ?
Or, this site <http://www.1x.net/> has several second level TLDs
available for free... ' Carful though, some of them are "premium"
(charged), like markdown.co.de.
Also, the eu.org second level tld is free and easily available (but it
takes quite some time to get a domain, from my own experience) but they
don't provide DNS servers (they could be set up on the VPS though).
Oh and about .tk, it's WAY better to have a website running BEFORE
asking dot.tk for a domain, since they check very quickly if everything
is in order; and if not, the website is taken down without prior notice
(you get a mail AFTER it's done).
