Completely agree with you Asaf. I don't think it's up to us Wikimedia-l subscribers, but up to each specific community. We can learn from their decisions but are on difficult ground if "we" judge them for it. Your third paragraph was a bit complex for me to "succinctly reword while agreeing with it", but it's a good starting point. But rather than a "top" list, perhaps we should be looking at "number of editors/number of speakers"?
