Obviously Wikispecies is not held by the five pillars of Wikipedia
"Wikipedia has a neutral point of view. We strive for articles that
advocate no single point of view." is the exact opposite of what 
Wikispecies does ("The free species directory that anyone can edit.").
A directory must operate from (and advocate) a single point of view. 
And obviously, 
does not apply to Wikispecies either.
