In see also it is preferable to link Wikipedia directly and not always matched
page are useful.

For example on dog=* key page (key defining whatever you can
enter with tog) it is not useful to link article about dog as an animal.

And some are already linked.

So review is needed anyway.

If someone is interested in adding more it is possible to generate
list of wiki pages without wikipedia links and with matching wikidata
page (let me know if someone would spend some time on using it).
