Recipes yes (that's just another word for howto).

Tips IMHO no, that is another class of documentation.

A howto IMHO is some writeup that includes multiple steps to solve some
(complex) problem.

That means, just one sentence is not a HowTo (and as there are likely
much more of those short tips than there are longer howtos, it would
somehow spoil that page, because it would get just too long).

There is a MoinMoinTips page that could be revived.

I am also thinking about putting some "Documentation" page into the
hierarchy above "HowTo", then MoinMoinTips could be linked from there.

This is "Notes" as in "Lotus Notes". If you don't know it, you don't
need it.
