is it possible to have a less extreme proposition than "hide
everything" t? for example :
- don't display an invitation to add a wikidata if it is not filled in
- display a "see also" with the link at the bottom of the page,
instead of in the infobox.
saying that each link requires human intervention to cut wikidata=Q...
and paste the link at the bottom of the article is a waste of human time.

yes I read that many matchs are not perfect, but having "see also
wikipedia link" is a real plus when you "also need to see it" :)
the match doesn't have to be perfect, wikipedia isn't made to learn
about osm tag, the goal if to let ppl be able to learn "general info"
about a subject, osm specific one are of course on osm wiki.
