It's funny that you'd effectively accuse the person who is probably
the #1 human contributor to enWiksource (Danny) of having project
tunnel vision.

The fact of the matter is that the problems discussed in this thread
are a real concern for all of our projects, including Wikisource.

Any solution which would help us keep imaginary islands out of
Wikisource would also likely help us keep imaginary primary sources
out of Wikisource.

Collectively we need to figure out how to work together better across
the project and linguistic barriers that divide us.  Simply putting
our heads in the sand and pretending that the difficulties of openness
are limited to enwiki is counterproductive.
