Just to add one personal note: Four requests [1][2][3][4] for Simple
German Wikipedia have influence on my position.

As I said on LangCom list, I am personally opposed to the projects in
simple languages, as, out of English one, their purpose tend to be
censored "family friendly" projects. Including the request for the
request in Simple German.

However, if there is a valid community which aims to create educational
project -- encyclopedia, to be precise --, I don't think that we have
right to forbid them that.
