Wikiversity is not the place to try to change or influence another
Wikimedia project. From what you describe, the Wikiversity project
seems to be opposed to some of the basic premises of Wikipedia.
Perhaps Wikiversity is being used because these ideas wouldn't gain
any currency on Wikipedia or Meta Wikimedia?
