I can confirm that this is ok with at least 3 Board members (Anthere,
Jimmy and myself), and the others haven't responded to my email about
it almost a week ago. So, please go ahead and create the wiki. Good
luck to everyone involved with the new project.
Your email suggests that this requires Board approval. If so, then post
it as a proposed resolution to the Board. Do not confuse the opinion of
three people (who may happen to be Board members) as being the same as
Board approval. Being a Board member does not confer any authority to a
member outside of the Board itself.
This proposal sounds to me like a community matter rather than a Board
matter. I prefer to let the community make these decisions as long as
the proposal falls within the broad mandate of the Foundation. It is
the responsibility of the president to monitor these activities and
bring it to the attention of the Board if there appears to be a conflict
with Foundation policy.

Not everything needs voting on. You might have noticed there were no
resolutions before this year
(<http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Resolutions>), instead relying
on consensus of three Board members. There have already been multiple
community votes on the Chinese Wikinews, as you can see on meta and on
the Chinese Wikipedia.
