It's too early for requirements. First we need to figure out what to abstract, and whether each abstraction really belongs in Gdk or should be moved "up" to Gtk (like clipboards) or "down" to Glib (like string conversions). Wikis are like whiteboards: They're a useful aid to a discussion but not a vehicle for the discussion itself. 

So if you want to start a wiki page, maybe you start a list of what Gdk abstracts, and we can discuss here where (i.e., GLib, Gdk, Gtk, or somewhere else, including Cairo and Pango) each of those abstractions belong. We could also consider whether there are abstractions in other libraries which would fit more naturally into Gdk.
