Up update I received this from Rabbi P. Waldham from ASk the Rabbi which I would like to share:
Shalom TF;

Thank you for your interesting question.

It is important that we save the tradition and keep to it. This is firmly based in the fact that Sephardim and Ashkenazim stick to their stringencies, prayers and even some of their leniencies, despite moving to a ‘melting pot’ area, such as New York – (source: “Igrot Moshe” by R’ M. Feinstein, O.C. I 159; “Yabia Omer” by R’ O. Yosef, V O.C. 37).

We are not familiar with the particular case you referenced but generally it would certainly seem that preserving a community's heritage is a worthy enterprise, especially when it involves sacred writings.
Received a similar answear to query at

While I am not familiar with the particular instance that you are referring to. In general, we should help Jews not only survive, but to help them preserve their heritage too.

Best wishes
How do you propose that Jews remain living in Arab-majority countries?
If the goverment they live under..fallows the Yemen pattern...thenget out and go up to Israel....
If the goverment does not fallow the Yemen pattern...let the Jews of that community deceide if they stay or go...
