I agree that adding `wikipedia` or `wikidata` to each location is wrong..
But using `operator:wikidata`/`operator:wikipedia` (and or `brand:wikidata`/`brand:wikipedia`) should be ok, even preferred.. 

This is the approach I’m taking with

which is the project that seeds the preset list for iD with common brand names

One of the unintended consequences of adding the wikipedia tag to fast food chains is that nominatim puts those locations high in the search results. We removed most of the wikipedia tags to Starbucks locations a few years back. The consensus at that time was that the wikipedia tag only belonged on the headquarters location and any store that had a unique wikipedia article. (Only one did, the first)
