I am a new user of knowledgeforge, but I will try to answer what I can -

I've heard "parked domain" refer to a domain reserved for later use as
well as a fairly inactive page/site that isn't designed to do anything
except gather money from adverts. The advertising angle doesn't seem
in line with the purposes of knowledgeforge, but I can't see any major
problem with setting up a domain and not using it for a while.

Bear in mind that the domain name will look like
http://knowledgeforge.net/mythings - I'm not certain but I don't think
knowledgeforge do domain registration, but it should be
straightforward to register a different domain name (I use gandi.net)
and have it point to a knowledgeforge site, e.g.
http://mythings.com -> http://knowledgeforge.net/mythings

(I've got a similar setup from my own server elsewhere, so that
hyperdata.org/wiki actually goes to knowledgeforge.net/gradino/wiki -
I did have my own Trac installation but web spiders kept bringing it
down, so thank you knowledgeforge!)

I'm fairly confident that just because a project site was banned in
Iran it wouldn't be removed for viewing in the rest of the world. (Are
they likely to ban a site for a software project?)

Yes, as well as the Wiki part (which is good for documentation) it has
a ticket system, and tickets may be bug reports. What's also very nice
is the subversion integration, so that the source code of your project
can be viewed from within Trac.
