No Original Research shouldn't be an issue, we already have Wikinews
accepting original reporting.

Neutral Point of View might be a more delicate area. You probably
couldn't write a travel guide using the same standards of NPOV as used
on Wikipedia, and if you could it would most likely be very dull. As
far as I know all the existing projects follow some form of NPOV, but
it isn't actually enshrined in the Foundation's mission statement,
vision or values.
