What is the problem? If an ARR encyclopedia is using ARR works similar to mine
under the doctrine of fair use and not by securing a license to do so, why
could they not use any copyrighted work, including by-sa or gpl works under
the same doctrine of fair use.

Fair use is its own area of complication. Surely any fair use parts should be
so marked for the safety of other's further down the line.
Let's say you include an ARR quote in a BY-SA work without properly indicating
what is what. Could another person come along and pull that quote out
thinking it is by-sa and use it in another work in a way that would be ok
under a by-sa license but would not be considered a fair use of the ARR work
in its new home?
And with felonies and jail time and all the other fun dangers coming into play
all the best,
