My inclination would be to keep the wiki pages as the "development 
branch" for which the Reports chapter is the "release branch". 
Suggestions for improvements could be tried out in the wiki with lower 
friction. When the wiki contents represents a significant improvement 
over the Reports chapter, migrate the content to the Reports chapter.

By the same token, sections of the Reports chapter can have links to the 
corresponding Wiki page.

MusicBrainz uses a scheme like this. Compare this documentation page

with the corresponding Wiki page:
