I really think all of these are superflous to each other. Shouldn't they be
merged into one policy, called Wikipedia:Verifiability? I mean, look at what

   - Wikipedia:Verifiability
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:V>basically says "content that
isn't blatantly obvious should be sourced".
   - Wikipedia:Reliable sources
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:RS>says "content should be
   - Wikipedia:Notability <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:N> says
   "if articles can't be sourced they will be deleted".
   - Wikipedia:No original
"we don't allow articles on things that can't be sourced".

What do you guys think?
