I have NO opinion on the matter, but PURELY as a ''suggestion'': If 
Wikispecies was implemented as a portal, after the example of the 
German Wikipedia (eg. cf. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal_Medizin) 
-- with all the individual articles inside the WP, maybe named 
[[Species:Whatever]] -- would that be a compromise that people might be 
more happy to accept?

The problem of already having announced species.wikipedia.org could be 
solved with a redirect, or maybe the entire Wikispecies thing could be 
left standing, but with automatic import of all the content into the 
aforedescribed [[WikiSpecies Portal]] and [[Species:blahblah]] 

Just a thought.
