I don't know how many times i have used wikipedia to find out some arcane information to help my kids with high school chemistry or physics, which is kind of the level that I find for those subjects on wikipedia. I think the 'just for researchers' is hyperbole on the part of the OP.

So punish the 90% who can use the information for the 10% who are 'just curious'. Frankly I don't care if the general public understands what electroweak interaction is. If they really want to know they have to do the heavy lifting needed to understand something. BTW I don't think electroweak interaction or graphene are 'basic topics' whether they are in the news or not.
