I got the screenshots the wrong way around in my original email. They should be like this:

It would be one thing if you were simply moving this content, such as into a collapsable or non-collapsable div. If it was that, maybe it could be non-collapsed by default, with a remembered preference, based on whether the user collapses it. 

Stripping it removes important information.  Just clicking Special:Random, I come across some example:

* https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/6610_Burwitz - there is no infobox, the information is not duplicated and is important.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Mail_%26_Newsgroups - important to know the alternative names here, no infobox
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferdinando_Orlandi - no infobox, but important information in brackets
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FVM_%C3%961_Tummelisa - important information to me, not really suited for the infobox

those are just some examples, and think it's bad idea to strip such information, imho.

I think it would be good to bring up the problem and ideas with the community. Maybe someone has a better idea.
