One can link any "external" resource using the XLink technology;
alt least this should work theoretically -- thus far I never saw it in
real life ;)

As long as resource problems at wikipedia.org are not resolved I'd
rather vote not to add new projects.  First make the core project work:
search features are very limited and available features are disabled
because of resource issues.
