This is also exactly my point: Not discussing now whether this would be 
in-scope (I am advocating heritage, but there could be other opinions), 
if we have such a meta-project, which has good relations with en.wp 
projects on one side, and WLM Philippines on the other side, and also 
with users who are not experts in Philippines nor in natural heritage, 
but would be interested in participating in a drive - this could 
considerable simplify things.
