is not Wikipedia-specific but rather _use_-specific. If we can do it,
they can do it.
Furthermore (and I suspect this point has probably been made
already, but it's worth making again) if they have a problem
with fair-use images, they can trivially strip them out of the
database, since we bend over backwards to tag them as such.
