Are you sure ? If there can be a redirect form 
www.wikipedia.com/a_articel to www.wikipedia.org/a_articel like it is 
now done it must be no problem to point www.wikipedia.com/a_articel to 

There are thousands of links to www.wikipedia.com but not (yet) to 
www.wikipedia.org . That is the reasen why it is now the time to think 
about this.
