Umm are we looking at a different set of grant funded projects here
because I've seen quite a few burn out over far shorter periods.

In any case for online stuff we still live in a world where 5 years is
long term and the foundation would have to quite spectacularly screw
up not to last that long. Beyond that they can point to the licenses
and database dumps. The software is open source the content is under a
free license. Even if Wikipedia isn't around the software and content
will be. Degrees of survival out to 10 years are fairly easy to
guarantee without special planning. Beyond that things always get a
bit speculative and long nowish.
