OK I think now's the time to trot out again my proposal based directly
on the notability of the modern literature in a language, and the
specific criterion of whether or not a Featured Article could be
written on e.g. [[Modern Latin literature]] in the English or another
major-language Wikipedia.  I know it's weird, but I'd like to hear
what's wrong with this idea -beside- its being weird..

I know you don't like written-only languages, but assuming for a
moment that you did, would this not be an objective and efficient way
to evaluate them?
