In a February 2007 article in Slate, "Evicted from Wikipedia" Noah opened a small can of worms by discussing the Wikipedia Notability Guideline. Noah's entry had been flagged for deletion review. His entry's re-instatement seems to be purely as a result of writing the article thereby raising questions about the fairness of the policy and the consistency of its implementation.
Here's a proposal (though this is off-the-cuff and I've haven't thought through it at all): Develop a sister project were there is no notability requirement that can then function as a repository for:
1. Non-encyclopedia notable entries - where, among other things, deleted entries can live on. (At present, the closest thing I've found to this is Wikidumper).
2. For personal entries, geneologies, tidbits, and so on.
In this way, it could function as, in a sense, the most detailed record of world history and be produced in real time. Ah, I've spoken too soon, a quick Google search yields The Genealogy of the World and (maybe?) Wikipeople.
