This kind of bridge raises a few questions

- texts are not under open licence so you can't redistribute
   it over a bridge that will strip most of it (ads included)
- the author may have wanted some specific layout/markup that you won't
   be able to render
- the authors / publishers are not aware that their content
   is available outside of

It may not seem harmful but I think it is wrong to proceed like this.

It works for something like wikipedia because the texts ARE licensed
with a compatible license for this kind of bridges.
