Yes, but WikiMedia is a result of years of work, Flippi is a lot less.
Wikipedia uses WikiMedia - its a tried and proven solution.

That sounds exactly like PureData - you can also do graphics as well
with PureData, the demo I saw was very cool. Of course, PureData is
written in C with Haskell as an extension language.

The last two ideas you mentioned require a graphical user interface,
which is an area of Haskell which is comparatively weak, compared to
the rest of Haskell.
