 I'm running an ancient distro on my Neo right now, but I just got a big and
blank SD card. If you can point out the wiki issues, I'll verify the correct
procedure, update the wiki pages and then put them in my watchlist to make
sure they don't lose their Neo parts. :)

Stay away from Qi, it has no DFU mode and you have no secondary bootloader.

I only have one question (I haven't explored the wiki lately) -- can I
choose between booting off flash and booting off SD? (I'm assuming I could
move kernels around by dfutil and so on, but is there an easy way to toggle,
like a boot manager or some magical incantation?)
