In that case you need to include a statement of your preferring
non-interactive (and generally simple and sane) representations of
resources in your requests for articles (as an HTTP header). Try sending a
mail to Wikimedia and the WHATWG or the HTML WG of W3C.

Your requests should something like:
GET /wiki/Ragnarök_(software) HTTP/1.0
Accept-Language: en
Accept-media: not interactive

Add paged and monochrome per taste. Such proposal would probably be
answered by blaming Mediawiki's use of omnimedia stylesheets, instead of
providing a stylesheet for each medium, and lack of semantic markup that
can be styled by user agents (that don't give a shit how Wikimedia staff
thinks Wikipedia content should be laid out).
