In the past years we've seen substantial semantic drift in the various
localized/translated versions. Having the English version visible for
consistent reference should help to avoid this. A two-column format
should make it not-too-irritating.

No, we're not committing to any advanced tracking of GFDL; it's an
obligation of re-users. (Which they should be able to meet by checking
for attribution of single-licensed content.)
