I would not call it silly, I would call it an intellectual exercise. It is
not necessary to call it silly.

Given that Wikisource is about source texts, I am less worried about the
veracity of the content than I would be in a Wikipedia project. There are
several projects where the orthography is an exercise in original research
as one often not formal orthography is insisted on. This is not restricted
to the Belarus Wikipedia by the way.
