It might get some action in the short term, but at what cost? What Fae just proposed is to make Wikimedia a reputational risk. This would scare people away from open access potentially doing long term damage.
I don't have a magic bullet, but this kind of approach is decidedly worrying.
In the meantime I can try to contact an appropriate curator. If we can get them onside that is the first step.
