at least then link to a specific version of an article.

-1, please copy the definition. Do not link them from external sites.
To the content of dictionaries you cited: the exact meaning of
"social" is generally tainted by political / philosophical
ideologies/point of view as well as cultural background. I wouldn't
dig too much into the details.

IMHO no link but a short description in the OSM wiki.
