Nice idea. I guess overpass is another great tool tgat could be used to
retreive data.

Wikipedia tags left as is? Absolutely. This is a data creation thing only.
We wouldn't remove or change any existing tags.

I speak theoretically of course. At the moment this is just an idea, hoping
to spark some interest amongst osm developers.

To make this process smoother, it could be good to do things such as
retrieve the target object location according to Nominatim and show the
wikidata page or preferably the wikipedia page on X language to confirm
that's the correct object, and perhaps even show the tags on that object in
Level0L or some other format.

And just to check: Such a script wouldn't remove the wikipedia tags from
those objects, correct?
It wouldn't be good to remove it, because the wikipedia tag is
well-established and supported by many applications, and support some cases
that aren't supported by the wikidata tag.
