Sounds like a plan. If you find something exceptional, we'll try to figure
out what to do with

I think that IF there is already a relation then it's cleaner to just tag
the relation than all the
individual components (or, worse, both). I don't think it's necessarily
wrong to tag the
individual components of a road with wikidata, although it could lead to
headaches, but some feel strongly that should not be done. Some have
argued not to
invent a relation just to be able to avoid tagging multiple things with the
same wikidata item
and I tend to agree: invent a relation if a relation is needed in its own
right, don't try to justify i
t with wikidata, but once you have a relation (for whatever other reason)
that's the right place
for the wikidata tag.

It's OK with me, but give it a week or two for any strong objections to

Then later we can expand that list with consensus.
Sounds like a good idea. It will probably have many statements along the
lines of "Most people
say X but some say Y" or "Opinion is divided." But still a good idea if we
can at least narrow it
down a little.
