This is a springboard off two other questions:

A springboard from the comments to ask this question:
If we took on such a project, what would be smart to take out?
For example, I always take out the "created by gedcom", the multiple "John smith was born 1624.... add more" bio starters, ancestry tree sources, etc
A HUGE thorn in my side that I am always afraid of is biography merging... most of the longer bios are probably just cut and pasted from somewhere else, but some are clearly not. It isnt good to have 4 paragraphs including "John Smith was born 1624 and married Jane Smith in 1640, though"...
One thing I HATE to delete, so I leave... are the ancestry/geni image/document type links... but the problem is that no one can usually access them but members of these sites... in theory they need to go away, and it would be nice to be able to link to something that could actually link for all... or retrieve the images/document info, etc... depending on copyright, etc
I know there are a ton more aspects but wanted to throw out a few of the basics and see what anyone has to add.
