That would do the trick I think. The biggest point I can see in such a 
scope extension is a community rejection, some people may be afraid that 
it would drown what they like about wikibook in other various works. Of 
course portals can manage visibility of specific themes.

Asking for contributor opinions is logic and indispensable, and that's 
what we should do if no one is against this project.
