"Meta" articles about Encyclopædia Galactica?
This topic comes up every few months, we kick it around and no one writes it. Like any gap in the project if there are no canonical reasons why something shouldn't be there then the only reason it isn't is that someone hasn't done it yet.

The usual consensus we have is that the EG we see is a tiny fraction of it all. In-universe the EG would be a mega-multi-format, intelligent document. It could adapt itself to present information differently, on the fly, for different people. When Alice looks up a question she may be presented with a text article with a few pictures. Bob's version could be a video style documentary. Claire may get an interpretive opera and David a pure-logic form that downloads directly to his mind.
