+1 to that.

In any case, I closed the deletion discussion. Commons policy about scope
says that any freely-licensed image in use on other projects is considered
automatically in scope, so it's a fruitless argument to have.

If peopled don't want this image on the Main Page (and I count myself in
that camp), the thing to do is get it de-listed as Featured or change the
Commons policy about what Featured images are eligible for the Main Page.
