IMO, no. There is no point making content if it isn't going to be
used. We talk about reuse all the time, but really, it's just regular
use which is most important. It's important that we support reuse, but
by far the best way for us to spread knowledge is simply by having
people read en.wikipedia.org (etc.). There are a lot of downsides to
this popularity, but since it's the whole point of our existence, we
just have to live with it.
