Even linking is of questionable use. OSM should be turned into a
replication of the whole info available in the internet. soon we will have
a single POI with a link to Wikipedia, Michelin, Zagat, Facebook, their own
native homepage, Tripadvisor, Google+, Linkedin, Twitter ...
where will it end?
And what is the advantage of having this in OSM. If I am interested I will
definitely not rely on osm data but go directly to these 3rd party services
