Sure, but the automatic translation only gives you the rough content but
mostly misses the finer details.

Well, given the description I would rather link  to
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bildstock or
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayside_shrine instead. In fact most
surprisingly there's also http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bildstock.

So after some more digging into the finer details I think "wayside shrine"
is probably not exactly the same as "potale" - at least not in German: A
wayside shrine is something more or less standing freely [1] while a potale
could also be a niche in another building. But having said so, I find would
find it perfectly reasonable to use historic=wayside_shrine for both. If
this is accepted I just would want to expand the description in the wiki
accordingly to cover both.
