Arguably, that was the intent behind that project in the first place.

That said, the news article format (as opposed to living prose) is 
demonstrably not what the readers want - they already voted with their 
browsers there.  And shuffling off to a different project (as opposed to 
another namespace on the same project) has logistical problems that are 
hard to overcome - and you want to be sharing infrastructure, rules, 
editors, et al.
