I don't have time to say too much right now, but figured I'd just shoot
this out quick:
Simple English Wikipedia: I can see good reasons for such a thing, but
actually working it out seems difficult, and I'm not at all interested
in it (I lean toward 'needlessly complex English', myself).
Simple English Wiktionary: Completely pointless, IMHO. I can't think of
any possible reason for such a thing, given as Simple English is
basically just a subset of English. A full dictionary is exactly what
simple-english people need to get their way to full-english. (And if the
issue is the verbiage in definitions themselves... they've got a
dictionary open right there to look that up in!)
Just a half a thought on that.
