Sounds eminently reasonable to me. If we paid for it, we should have access, and the free flow of knowledge can only be a good thing.

OTOH is more accessability going to be a license for idiots to misinterpret anything and everything causing widespread outrage and panic?

Laterally, thinking about knowledge sharing, have you had a look at Khan academy? If only it were available in my school years! Find myself getting suckered into the lectures to easily.
