Fully agree.

I wonder if it might be better to do what Wikipedia have done - instead
of having one Wiki where the same articles exist in different languages
(and often with wildly different content), have a Wiki for every
language where the community using that language can build their own OSM
reference (with Interwiki links where useful).
