I mean, there are few topics you can Google for now, without seeing Wikipedia prominent in the results.
So is it likely Google would do that for a site, which it really trusted? Or is Wiki just getting ridiculously popular so that it has sites linking to just about every page?

I can't find a MainStream Media website that outranks Wikipedia. Can you?

However, I don't think there's any question about it. Wikipedia is viewed by Google as an authority site.

Add to that the number of pages on the domain (just short of 16 million according to Yahoo) and the fact that new content is constantly being added, and there's just no way for Google to ignore it.

I would have to say that in my experience in most cases they are, and I would go on to say that if I am looking for general information on something and a Wiki entry doesn't get returned I will often type in Wikipedia at the end of the search phrase to force it.
Yes I know that the information in Wikipedia is not always accurate, but to my mind it is a source that often gives enough good and reliable information for a general enquiry.
Therefore if a search engine is doing its thing right I would expect Wikipedia entries to feature highly for general search enquiries.
