To my eyes, it looks like the edit to this page is more of an application of Wiki-strategy than any sort of attempt to produce a list of vetted centers. Per wikipedia, lists should only contain items that are linked with a page already constructed in the wikiverse. External links are instead used in “See also” type usage. Users who wish to add to the list of DH centers should first create a wikipedia page for their centre and then link to that wikipedia page from the list of centers on the main DH page. Here’s the relevant citation from wikipedia (referred to as Write the Article First): "Lists should only contain internally linked articles, thus serving as natural tables of content and indexes of Wikipedia.”
