There is a wealth of work done all the time by primary source
researchers and publishers, which could be improved on by having
wikisource entries, translations, &c.

Related question : how appropriate would large numbers of public
domain texts, with page scans and the best available OCR [and
translations of same], fit with what Wikisource does now?  This is
clearly a wiki project that needs to happen : OCR even at its best
misses rare meaning-bearing words.   If not Wikisource, where should
this work take place?
