(4) people aren’t improving OpenStreetMap tag objects in wikidata (see highway tag object, nothing has been done for years)

the only option to get a wd link that fits perfectly and will also fit in the future, is a specific object crafted for an OpenStreetMap tag, everything else will have its own scope and logics and will at most describe a similar concept. This is also true for the “translations” (which aren’t real translations, they are alternative versions in different languages, sometimes completely different from other languages)
