Can they? The en-wp fair use rationale states that it is valid fair use
"On the English-language Wikipedia hosted on servers in the United States by
the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation."

And what about ND images? If there is an image that is fair use on a page,
and the rationale is strong enough to allow me to use it, then surely I
would be allowed to use an ND image at the same place.
