OmegaWiki was created to the prevent double work that is inherent in
Wiktionary. When you ask what value it has for "the Wiktionary projects"
then it is not really one question and consequently there is not one answer.
It is however the wrong question, the question is: does it add something to
what we do in the WMF.
Wikimedia stands for open content and everybody can edit. However, the
changes by a vandal are not appreciated and consequently he / she will be
banned. <grin> that is what we do at OmegaWiki as well. As to the Wikimedia
rules, the rules for Wikinews are different from Wikipedia from Commons from
Wiktionary. This is true for OmegaWiki as well. Are the rules compatible,
Come and experience it. It will certainly provide you with facts in stead of
leave you with questions.
NB It was the intention for WiktionaryZ to be a WMF project. Sadly it was
not to be and now the project is called OmegaWiki. It was not my initiative
to call for the inclusion of OmegaWiki in the WMF, I am however of the
opinion that it is still a good idea.

I fail to see how this project could be usefull for the Wiktionary
because it will probably bring double stuff, we have some big projects
in some languages, why should be bring on a new project that would be
multilingual? It sounds that we only have double work.
And Wikimedia stands for open content that everybody can change, will
OmegaWiki use all wikimedia rules when it would be a project?
