Are you sure that the syntax is similar enough?  Headings and lists,
maybe, but tables and many other things are quite different.  Of
course, you may be able to write in a syntax like Markdown or Textile
in Zim and then cut'n'paste between Zim and other wikis.  I do that
with Redmine which uses Textile syntax.

Speaking of integration, I jotted down a few notes about syncing
between Zim and Redmine, but it didn't result in anything tangible

Integrating it with Github works reasonably well, including editing,
albeit the syntax is only recognized as plain text in the Github web

Zim is certainly a good option for what it is intended for.  Let us
know, if you make any progress towards an integration with DokuWiki.
