How do/would Wikidata links relate to Wikipedia links in OSM objects?

i.e. Does this suggest Wikidata links should supercede Wikipedia links or would they be complimentary?

Presumably if complimentary (to maintain existing data users' usage of Wikipedia tags) - one could write a test to confirm they are referencing the same thing to check consistency.
