Not only should it be rejected, it should be rejected with prejudice. I am not a fan of writing articles by bot not because they are bad but because we can improve on the concept. The text can be created in the usual manner and the resulting text can be cached, not saved. This means that when there are changes to the data, they are picked up in the resulting articles. It means that improvements on Wikidata do result in a better end user experience.
Given the blanket announcement by the outreach manager of the Wikimedia Foundation that there will be no research in the Cebuano Wikipedia and the effects the bot articles have, we have a situation that this attitude prevents an avenue of providing information in the smaller languages. He echoes what English Wikipedians opine and imho he does he disservice to what we stand for, "sharing the sum of all knowledge".
No, there is no good argument to close the Cebuano Wikipedia. There is every argument to learn from the experience and do better. We should not throw the baby with the wash water.
