Hi Janko,
  I definitely like the idea. In addition to the uses you mention, I
think it will be useful for other sites to retrieve relevant OSM data.
Eg, showing a map with appropriate bounding box by querying for the
right wikidata ID.

It's worth menitioning that Wikidata is still very new. How stable are
the IDs? Any policies around them?
