Personally I am all for this - the two people that should really decide
and are to be consulted are Ahmad Al Rasheedan and Ossama Khayat.  Since
Mr. Al-Rasheedan was/is involved in wikipedia I don't think he would
mind and I'm sure Ossama will go along as we all share the same goal of
spreading our beloved Arabic language given all things equal.

In short, you won't see/hear me oppose this but this is not my decision to
make (I'm just trying to sway the direction ;-) I would as is noted above
at least make ONE exception and ask that wiktionary to note the exception.

Hope that helps.
