"Part of" is frequently ill-defined.  To take your "mountain:" example,
mountain-climbers consider Little Tahoma to be a mountain, while
geologists consider it to be a satellite peak of Mount Rainier.  Given
that, how do you decide if Fryingpan Glacier is a
"mountain:wikidata=Q1367080" or a "mountain:wikidata=Q194057"?
