Everyone seems to have overlooked another possibility for the Chinese blocking of wikipedia (and Chinese internet censorship in general) and that is to prevent the easy dissemination of Chinese scientific secrets to anyone outside of China. Given that they are presently playing a game of economic catch up it would make sense that all new discoveries would be zealously guarded to be played as a trump card at some future date.

I think that researchers' difficulties may just be a symptom of this, as many have said if one wants to research properly there are still many other avenues left open when the internet fails.
