"Despite that iD is asking user to add brand:wikidata and brand:wikipedia
and describes this action as "XYZ looks like a brand with nonstandard tags"
and offers user to "Upgrade the tags"."
For now nobody made a PR and is with "considering" label.

I am tempted to interpret this way, but so far I made no attempt to escalate
it to DWG (and I am not planning it, I have found recently two undiscussed
imports that should be reverted due to unclear copyright status that are
anyway not handled due to lack of time).

I would rather say that iD validator should have sane interface not
black box "upgrade tags".
