There are no plans for inclusion of Wikispecies as client site, but if/when Wikispecies' needs are implemented this doesn't imply Wikispecies would be useless, rather that it would have easier access to data and could focus on its scope i.e. presenting such data. Currently it tries to do both and IMHO fails at both.
