FWIW, mediawiki has a complete REST API - it can be accessed from
the command line with curl, etc - all of the discussion so far
has the regrettable presumption, that a web browser is required
to read/write data to/from the internet, or to do so in an
"accessible" way

API clients are easy to write; and there are clients made for
mediawiki already (weboob alone, has multiple plugins for
mediawiki) - AFAIAC, that would satisfy the text-only use-case,
just as well as gopher or anything else would, but without
replacing the wiki, migrating all of it's data, or even patching
any upstream code - the FSF would only need to enable API
access, if it is not already

if some web service has a complete remote API, that is already
the ideal option for text-only, no-js, accessibility, etc - an
API is fully accessible by its nature (no colors, no mouse
buttons to locate, etc)

in short, the best javscript is 'none', and the best web browser
is 'none' - no need to re-invent the wheel - mediawiki already
supports it
