[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - Find A Grave cemetery and grave IDs

I'm not found of external ids in OSM, but I don't really care about cemeteries, so I don't really bother. 

However, a few open questions: I wonder if the other way around is doable: extend findagrave data with geo coordinates picked from OSM map. At least we could hope that their users might add or maintain cemeteries in OSM and enrich our data. 
Also, what about licensing? Their data is crowdsourced, sure, but is it open? If not, are we allowed to use their ids? Do we feel like to?

>From the page: “It [must contain] at least one valid sitelink to a page on Wikipedia, Wikivoyage, Wikisource, Wikiquote, Wikinews, Wikibooks, Wikidata, Wikispecies, Wikiversity, or Wikimedia Commons.”So, it boils down to one of the original concerns: WP’s notability policy itself.  Find A Grave has no such policy, and in fact has no problem with adding, say, the burial location of your pet catfish if you so please.  If this wasn’t a problem, I’d actually go with Wikidata as it’s already established in OSM.Also, please excuse my reply being on top; I'm responding from mobile at the moment and have no idea how to change it.—Seth Price

Not sure thousands or millions of individual graves are sufficiently relevant for wikidata to justify entering there (wikidata has different criteria for inclusion than OpenStreetMap)https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Notability if someone is interested(have not checked whatever grave would pass it, not sure how it is implemented in practice)
