Any idea why jQuery was decided to be the library of choice? Was there any analysis done for it?
Or you guys just picked the hottest latest thing? Just curious, really.

Hi,

Yes, this is planned for SF, for the reason you note - it was actually mentioned in my "planned changes" talk at SMW Camp [1] (page 6). SF also uses the Floatbox Javascript library for file uploading, which I also hope to move over to jQuery if possible.

Similarly, Semantic Drilldown uses the Ext library for comboboxes, and I hope to move that to jQuery as well.
 
I should note that I have no immediate plans to do this, and also no special knowledge of jQuery yet; so if you or anyone else wants to help with the move-over, please just let me know.

Has there been any discussion, tickets, or thought towards migrating
Semantic Forms (and if it uses YUI anywhere, SMW)?

The usability initiative / js2 is using jQuery so jQuery will soon be
standardly included into MediaWiki.

So it would be a good idea to migrate to using jQuery. Loading 2
different javascript libraries is unnecessary.
