Quick clarification. I am certainly not the most active editor on en  
wikisource. There are plenty of great people there with more edits than me, with  
special shoutouts to Pathoschild, BirgitteSB, Jude, Zhaladshar, Shanel, and many  
others to numerous to mention.

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.
