"the map" might be the standard mapnik map, but also a specialized
power map, which could be interested in more information then just
"nuclear fission". I don't see why we have to rely only on wikipedia
(it is of course good to have this link), if people are interested in
tagging other detail, its welcome.

usually wikipedia=en:foo is suggested.
