Its not just Wikipedia, it is everybody, except a very few sensitive m43 fanboys... What "full frame" means now (hint: It is not "four thirds" :)):

Generally the animal now mostly knwon in english as a donkey is actually called an ass, but because the other word is used more, it have been accepted as "the name" for that animal...

Not unlike this, where the old std. (small movie film roll based, "too small to make good stills") have now been accepted as "full frame" as the name...

And so what if some people writes that on Wikipedia? There are other much more controversial and less "accurate" articles on Wikipedia... It is not hurting anyone that some/most people now call 35mm "full frame". It is not accurate and it is not correct, but it does not hurt anyone...
