If it did work, Wikipedia would suddenly become
the source of 99% of
extant Gothic texts, which would be somewhat interesting.
Perhaps the Gothic writers could start off with Wikisource. Various
technical issues could be worked out there (encoding, font,
spelling). Just annotating the texts in Gothic could be a small, yet
unprecedented (?) step toward more original writing.
Another good place to start is wiktionary; to me artificial or dead
languages make themselves more credible if a wikipedia customer can
find what the words actually mean. I would propose that a minimum of
say 1500 of the most used words have entries in one wiktionary. After
this is done, the people who propose a new wikipedia have proven
themselves to be serious by giving our users a change to understand
what is says.
