Have you ever looked into Google Apps?  Their "Sites" are their own  
versions of wiki's.  Rather impressive if you ask me.  I have been  
using them. They can be public, private, or individually owned.  May  
not be as deep into access control as you need, but worth examining at  
least.  If you need help with it, let me know.  I setup Google App  
sites all the times.
