Since I was away for a few days and had to do some presentation yesterday, I 
only now could look into this.

Please correct me, if I'm wrong!
If I understand this correctly, it wil kind of force syncronization between 
the en wiki and the others.

As I said in last i18n meeting as well as in doc team, I'd like to keep the 
more important things like
- really important documentation
- errata
- information about the project
- ...
in sync.
But I do see fields in which a dezentralization is important as well,
e.g. planning an event can be done very nicely using a wiki (like we did for 
FOSDEM 2011 or MandrivaUser.de does for some time.
