Sounds like a good plan, but (as others have said) it shouldn't be
called "Wikipedia". It's no more an encyclopaedia than it is a
dictionary (etc) - they're using "Wikipedia" as the name because it's
the best known, which doesn't sound like a good reason to me. The name
should reflect the contents.
