Measured that way, I could code a bot that sets name=foo for all objects 
with a name tag. Assuming I'm decent at coding, I could have zero Type I 
and Type II errors, and by those criteria this mechanical edit would be 
a success.

Success should be measured against the reasons for the mechanical edit. 
Adding wikidata tags isn't the reason, it's what it does.
