As far as I've seen, the only person arguing for a usable mo-cyrl wiki
is Mark Williamson. I sort of doubt that he is actually from
Transnistria or a Romanian speaker, but his philosophical point seems
to be that having a wiki in your native language and script is a basic
human right. I'm not sure when that became the dominant criteria for
opening or maintaining a wiki in a particular language.
