Since there'll be L17/T8 characters fighting demon lords and such, I feel it'd be good to know the limits of wish. I asked James, but...

Suppose I'm using multiple wishes to debuff Treerazer. Can I use a wish to…
1. Reduce his spell resistance? Remove it?
2. Make his summoned demons disappear? Prevent him from summoning them?
3. Reduce his bonus to reflex (or one other) saves? Or to all saves? Remove being able to make reflex (or one other) saves? Or (again) to all saves? Reduce his dexterity to 1? To 0?
4. Remove his fire resistance? Remove his energy resistances? Remove his poison (or other)immunity? Remove all his immunities?
So, how would you as GM adjudicate wish?

Aside from the literal description of wish, I always noted that it was a conjuration spell (back in the day), and therefore a caster could ask (ie wish) for any sort of conjured material provision. So you can have any spell effect or you can have any provision summoned.
The problem with wishing away all SR is metamechanic references. Why not wish Treerazer had an AC of zero? Or for him to simply fail his next save? I say there are plenty of resources to beat back the bad guys without having to risk breaching that barrier.
