    1. MEIZ8C:has entirely applied to written text but seemingly could be applied to other types of information as pictures.
  2. MEIYI2:requirements=requirements & features, from- most-to-least important roughly (note later often depend on earlier):

    1. MEIP4U:a Wikipedia-article-like format=similar to en.Wikipedia.Org especially a Wikipedia-article, except
      1. MEJ5AZ:No notability requirement
        1. MEJ5MQ:-better handled by categorizing especially rating articles.

    5. MEJ5OQ:All content copied/repeated must, with most essential first:
      1. M79WDB:specify the exact source of its copied content including if possible
        1. M7AUTX: the source version ID/# else sampling date
        2. MEJ6KI:a bookmark (#anchor in HTML) to the exact location within the content as page
        3. MEJ65K:a link/URL to the source, clickable if possible
      2. MEJ6PY:Clearly indicate on the content which of it was copied
        1. M79WEF: as put all copied content in quotations (optional if it’s a title or name)
      3. M79WF4: make clear any changes made in the copy
        1. MEJ6VL:as by using notation “..” for text removed and “[<variation/>]” surrounding text changed.
      4. MEJ6A9: TODO: This Section MEJ5OQ content was copied from /3374#M79VPF content which needs to be moved & pointed to here.
    6. MEJ15B:recorded=recorded
      1. MEJ1AL:in media format=in media format (from-most-to-least importance)
        1. MEIZ6F:writing/text

        4. MEJ1DL:audio
        5. MEJ1H2:other
    7. MEIRQQ:accessible by as many people as practical, to do the most overall good, including:
      1. MEIS4P:using psydonyms to allow for a wider audience
      2. MEISHT:access which is easy including affordable, including for just a small random portion
    8. MEIRXV:recorded including impossible-ideally to loose any data, including any prior significant version
    9. MEIPLF:a living document which continuously develops
      1. MEJ0CI:-not (the typical historic) 1-shot document, typically dead after first publication or else after a few distant editions
      2. MEIQQW:strongly designed for easy update & insert of most information

    12. MEIQ49:MEIQ49=ideally every point has its own permanent globally-unique-id which also tells when it was created &  ideally by whom

    13. MEIP1J:encyclopedic-style of mostly fact and where opinion is separated and balanced
    14. MEIQLW:outlined info=in an outline for all the benefits that offers
      1. MEJ7G2:including also enables MEIQ49
      2. MEJ7EW:Wikipedia generally goes against this which I think, yes, is immediately familiar but long-term wrong due to the longer-term benefits.
    15. MEISZD:standard structuring (as, when, what, where, why, etc)
    16. MEIPZM:per support for collaboration, ability for anyone to author
    17. MEIQKZ:pre-parsed for eventual computer comprehension while still being human readable
