I disagree. I think it is strange to count the various

We are talking about the progress of the project as a whole -our community
effort-, we /are not/ boasting about the relative merit of our encyclopedia
as a usable resource (using article count as a proxy). We need to make that

(including the ones that are translations). /That/ is what the milestone
statement is for.
