Hmmm - I don't really know what to say about this.

On one hand, it is good that the Wikipedians are concerned about
the quality of their articles and thus are worried about the
reliability of the sources.  On the other hand, I somehow feel
this goes a bit out of hand.  To my taste, there is too much
deletionism in fashion.  And it is a bit self-contradictory to
forbid references to open wikis if your own project itself is
an open wiki, isn't it?
