[Foundation-l] A dangerous precedent

It is interesting, although more on the larger issues of:
* What constitutes a viable wikipedia language project? Do some
languages not deserve to have a Wikipedia? Or, conversely, do we
create a new wikipedia for every single conlang in existence?
* When, if ever, can the foundation step in to "fix" a language
project that may have gone astray? Is there a way to evaluate the
progress and status of a language project to determine if it is
generally "good" or "bad"?
* What are the criteria for closing a project, moving a project
to/from the incubator, etc?
* What are people's general feelings about using an automatic
translator bot to populate large numbers of pages?

These are all well worth discussion here and on meta.
