To answer the second question, all edits are equal, but some edits are
more equal than others.

The measure is purely the number of edits, regardless of whether they're
one-liners or new 200-line pages. Sometimes article reduction, editing &
correction is more valuable than dumping raw content from elsewhere (for
example), so I'm quite happy to have that be the case.

As Ryan said, the top wiki editors don't get a lot of karma from it.
It's amusing to me that as a fairly irregular forum contributor but
frequent wiki editor that I have more karma from tmo thanks than from
wikiedits :)
