I think it's a great idea, a serious step for the integration of the Open
Access world with the Wikimedia one. Being born-digital content, I would
support all kinds of "bot-hash" validation, maybe a "human" one is
just for formatting or templates.
Looking forward to see these things come true :-)

today, we posted a proposal to the English Wikisource about automated
import of Open-Access articles:
In parallel, I uploaded an important zoological work (the first
monograph to use Linnean taxonomy for animals; written in Swedish and
accompanied by a Latin translation) to Wikimedia Commons and posted
about this at the Swedish and Latin Wikisources:
In both cases, the aim is to bring more scholarly content onto
Wikisource, and the idea is to scale things up if that works well.
Feedback of any kind is most welcome.
Thanks and cheers,
