I can think of two possible approaches:

a MoinMoin macro/plugin that gets called each time a page is rendered
a stand-alone script that gets run periodically

The first would seem to incur quite some overhead on the wiki server, which iiuc already suffers.

Running any sort of analysis on the wiki server at render time is definitely a non-starter. That content is viewed way more often than it changes.

Somewhat as a corollary the wiki is designed to be easily and openly edited without significant structure. Many of the things that are already referenced are auto generated. It might be worth exploring auto generating more of the content, rather than finding way to enforce that the content is captured in the free form wiki content.
