[Tagging] RFC: remove alphanumeric code visible in infoboxes at OSM Wiki linking to Wikidata

This proposal is a bit unusual as it is not about tagging at all
(it has no impact on wikidata tag on objects in OSM database).

Infobox is a box on the side of the tag page on OSM Wiki, listing the summary
of the most important info.
See for example https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:building%3Dchurch

Currently it contains at the bottom link to external site Wikidata
or request to add such link.

I propose to remove this link from infoboxes as as confusing, unnecessary
and not worth using infobox space.

Preemptive explanation:

It has no impact on wikidata=*
It has no impact on data items, including P12 property.
    It will be still possible to add and use Wikidata links stored in data items
It has no impact on anything mapped
