Wikipedia editors tend to be rather quick to remove anything that looks like advertising, and they would basically apply the rule that a piece of software can only appear in Wikipedia if it is sufficiently notable. I'm not sure that's the criterion we would want to apply, and I'm not sure we would want the decisions to be made by unaccountable editors.
