Why not just do this in the Wikisource project?
99% percent of "every published work" are free/libre. Only the last
70 years worth of texts are restricted by copyright, so it doesnt make
sense to build a different project for those works.
i.e. Wikisource could still have a page about a source even if the
text is not present.
But before that is feasible, we need a bigger Wikisource community,
otherwise it will end up as a mess.
