I, for one, think it entirely unfair that you guys can just usurp a
so-far very successful process.

I think most people will agree that there were flaws with requests for
NEW languages, but I think you will find it more difficult to find
people who think we had any problem with Wikisource and Wikinews

I think (and this is just my opinion, but I would imagine at least
someone out there agrees with me) that you should leave Wikinews and
Wikisource be as they were before to process their own requests.
