SRS doesn't distinguish between meaning and reading

There’s a userscript for reviewing burned items, Burn Reviews, that adds a panel on the Dashboard to periodically quiz you on items you have burned and lets you unburn any you get wrong. However, I do agree with the others that reading means you encounter those items out in the wild frequently enough to not forget them. If you do forget some obscure kanji because you never encounter it, well, no huge loss.

The point of WK is not to constantly test your kanji knowledge, it’s to teach you the kanji well enough to read Japanese material. Once you have burned an item, in theory you know it well enough that you will recognize it if you run across it.
