Why?

I would prefer not, as I like the project domains to be kept clean,
and I suspect it would (by effect if not intent) be abusing
'wikipedia's name to push meta content higher up in the results.

Project domains should be used for that project only, so IMO it would
only be appropriate to host a Wikipedia specific blog on
blog.wikipedia.org (and likewise for the other projects).  However I
feel it is cleaner if project subdomains are restricted to language
codes except where redirects are needed for keeping historical links
working.

Currently when I search "blog wikipedia" , I get the Wikimedia blog as
the third result, followed by three Wikimedia blog posts about
Wikipedia.  Ideally that search should show _more_ Wikipedia content
about blogs in the search results before meta stuff like the Wikimedia
blog.

If we added and used blog.wikipedia.org, it would probably rank higher
in search results, which I believe is contrary to our goals.
