This proposal improves data consistency and relationship between data. Are
we really willing to reject it because the data we put in may be wrong?
That case would obviously be a conflict if you looked at both tags. For
sure, any consumer will privilege one over the other. Suppose you use
wikidata as your main tag, and operator as a fallback: the problem is no
more, that fast food is a McDonald's.
If the two tags are inconsistent, it's a problem in the data, not in the
mapping scheme. We are full of inconsistent data, don't tell me wikidata
will make that worse.
