Some small points:

Are there any tools (plugins) that show orphaned pages, pages with dead
links, etc? (Just like MediaWikis "special" namespace.) Could be handy
while the reorganization takes place.

Concerning plugins: How will the development stuff be seperated from
user stuff? Are there guidelines for that? The most logical thing would
be to keep small plugins under "plugin:" and give bigger plugins a
seperate page under "devel:" !?

To get more hands, one could invite all plugin-developers/
wiki-contributors directly to fix their own pages. I guess not all are
on this list. Then again one would need good guidelines, so they know
what to do.

With the Vim Tips Wiki ( http://vim.wikia.org ) (a quite similar task,
reorganization of a _big_ knowledge base) we made extensive use of
  * "boilerplates" to mark pages and 
  * written guidelines/policies for contributors. 
It was a bit overdone, but in the end it was quite successful. Might be
worth to think about for dw-reorganization too.

My 2 cents,
