What is the benefit? 
Most wikis already come with a versioning of changes. 

One property that sets dokuwiki apart from many other wikis is the fact 
that it does not use a data base in the background. Dokuwiki content is just 
a bunch of human readable files somewhere in a dedicated directory. I often 
interact with my dokuwiki at work by adding or editing files directly rather
than using the integrated interface.
The dedicated dokuwiki directory might be set-up as git repo. That way, the
whole website could be cloned, changed locally and pushed and merged like any 
other project under git.

You mean the syntax highlighting? There are five alternative syntax highlight
plugins for dokuwiki. This is my favorite:

There is a vast amount of plugins available for dokuwiki
These are very easy to install and maintain. The current dokuwiki set-up
of geda hardly scratches the surface of what is possible. 

Dokuwiki offers a lot of infrastructure that has grown over the years. 
I'd only consider to loose this environment for _very_ compelling reasons.
