Does that apply only to [[Tokyo]] or does it apply equally to
[[Bumsville]], a tiny town of 300 people which has the highest
per-capita rate of hamburger consumption in Canada?
I don't think that *all* of English Wikipedia has now matured in the
way you describe. The core has. We would not accept crap in an article
about a major, major city. But I think we do still accept crap in new
stubs, although we could change that.
