It isn't that easy to add Wikidata ID's with a script. Wikipedia
articles often describe more than one object. For example the article
of Heligoland: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heligoland

The article describes the island and the municipality. To model this
in Wikidata you need two different objects. For the island:
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q17043877 and municipality:
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q3038

I've tried to describe the issue here:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:wikidata

Sorry for my bad english.
