Wish-cards are absolute playable in the commander format. There are simply tutors like Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Mystical Tutor,... allowed, wich have at least the same (ore even more) powerful effect.

So the wish-cards are definitely no problem for the game!!!! And there you may argument the situation of no commander sideboard? It's clear, a sideboard is good for the format, not just because of the wishes. Normally you are playing more than one game in a row, so why not having some cards for some improvement? For me it's clear: MTG Commander should be balanced and these are important rules change!

My vote is for update this rule as soon as possible.

This subject has been beaten to death. You may wish to read the "Mastermind's Acquisition can we have sideboards" thread, which is currently on the front page of the rules forums.

First off, bolded part, that's not what sideboards are for. Sideboards are for changing your deck in the middle of a tournament. Single games you simply change your deck from your collection between games.

Second, they fundamentally disagree with the deck construction rules. Given a 15-card sideboard, you're essentially making a 115-X deck where X is the number of wishes you have in your deck. Just freaking cut cards already.
