The only thing expected is that they allow for a round robin
transliteration. The default will be the Latin script, there will only be an
option associated with the Romanian language that allows for the text to be
shown in Cyrillic.

The language policy allows for one project per project. It does explicitly
not allow for the exclusion of people who use another script.

For the record, I am in favour of the deletion of the Maldovan Wikipedia and
I am in favour of a transliteration engine.
