[Foundation-l] Wikibooks texts and Wikiversity

A comment in IRC yesterday raised a concern for me which I would like  
to see addressed.

Cormac mentioned that he and Mr Horning had discussed moving  
textbooks and curricula from en.Wikibooks to en.Wikiversity. He was  
unsure if this meant the textbooks would be deleted from  
en.Wikibooks, but he was sure any contributors who preferred working  
on en.Wikibooks would be able to copy them back to that project.

This seems extremely odd to me, that deleting a textbook from  
Wikibooks would even be contemplated. Educational materials are,  
after all, the mission of the project. And dividing a textbook  
between projects seems to be forking, both of the book in question  
and the potential contributors as well, again something which should  
not even be contemplated in my opinion.

Could the Wikiversity project please clarify this?
