No. Assuming that "a WMF project" = any Wikimedia Foundation project, there
are ways to insert non-GFDL content into such projects, and not only
non-GFDL images (like CC-BY-SA) at Commons, en.Wikibooks, or elsewhere.

Read http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:Copyright

"If you contribute source materials written by someone else to Wikisource
you thereby warrant that the source material is either public domain in the
United States or that you have permission from the copyright holder to
place the work on Wikisource."

I possibly misunderstood it, by I think that if I have some noncommercial or
no-derivates license (such as CC-BY-NC-ND), then I am allowed to upload
that source text to en.Wikisource.
