I would also consider for inclusion the following features:

* Priority of the question (for answer order) which could just be a back 
end field.
* Severity of the problem, or implications there of.
* Related KB items
* Group/FE-user based access control for categories and KB article 
views, to prevent say external users from viewing internal KB.

Thanks, good luck!

If you need any help or what-not, let me know, I'll help where I can!
