Unicode support is not that big of a deal. It's growing all the time, and
the Unicode standard itself is ahead of Wikipedia and will likely remain
ahead of it for a while. The operating systems' actual support for it is
far from perfect, but it isn't a huge in itself either.

Existence of written works is not a problem in itself at all.
Theoretically, a Wikipedia can be written completely based on
foreign-language sources. The challenge is to actually get people who speak
languages that don't have written works to start creating the first written
work. It's not impossible, but it's culturally challenging.
