Perhaps there is - you and Gerard appear to be arguing that a
round-robin transliteration option (on ro.wp, presumably) should be a
precondition for dealing with the existence of mo.wp. It seems
plausible that would be an unpopular proposal on the Romanian
Wikipedia, and there don't appear to be any volunteers for doing the
work to set it up. Almost as importantly... Since a permanent solution
for mo.wp hasn't been forthcoming in the past 4-5 years, I'm not sure
it's a great idea to be adding barriers -- especially when a simple,
common sense solution is available and there appear to be few if any
actual Transnistrians interested in a project in their script. Does
that clear things up?
