I agree that a few of the historic images are worth keeping, the ones

How is this consistent with your initial declaration that "it will
all be gone in a few years"? Either fair use is sometimes acceptable
or never acceptable - even one fair use image, no matter how much it
is "worth keeping", makes en: non-free.
And of course if you admit the principle that some nonfree images
are allowable, you've reduced it to a matter of personal opinion as
to whether any class of nonfree image is worth including. Every
class of image now accepted has a number of respected editors who
support including that class.
Personally I believe we should make a free encyclopaedia, and get rid
of all of them. I dont think this will quite happen for a few years. We
will get rid of the vast majority however. Expect the Jimbo decree this
