Well it's debatable indeed. On the "yes" side:
* These pages' titles all start with "Wishlist/",  so they keep together
near the end of the list
* Wishlist means it's clear that they do not lead to running code.
* It might avoid people starting new wishlist pages for ideas already
written. * People browsing an application category are probably the most
ready to pick up a wishlist idea and run.
* I would prefer to positively know that something is unimplemented than
just forgotten from the category
