No, definitely not. What is wrong with
GNU Octave is a system for numerical computations with a language
that is mostly compatible with Matlab.

How do you see this working exactly?
Text entered in the wiki will be in what format?
To be included in the Octave documentation it must use Texinfo
markup. If the wiki uses some other markup, who will do the
conversion, verify that it is correct, make sure that the text and
examples have not been inapproriately borrowed from some other source,
etc., and then check in the changes? I'd be happy to have improved
documentation, but I can't take on these tasks, so someone else will
need to agree to do this job.
