a "historical" section and move all the old pages to the historical
section? I also think the old pages do have value, if not for the reasons
mentioned above then also to get a bit nostalgic about the past. Some
people actually go to museums and look at old stuff...

Having said that, it would be great if the wiki would be reorganized so
that the main page does point to up-to-date information and that search
actions do give meaningful results.
