That's not the issiue. it mus be apparent from the article itself why it is notable. If it is not apparent from the article why it is notable, then it is not notable. It really is that simple.

That is of no help if neither is used as sources for what's written in the article.
It can be compared to what happens in court. It's not what you know, but what you can prove in the court.

You can't use another wikipedia article as source. That is original research.
If one could one culd write an article about X and use the article about Y as source, and in teh Y article use X as source. Then you have the circular argument problem.
