in many cases it is interesting/usefull to have an OSM-feature linked
directly to wikipedia, (what doesn't exclude the other way round), but
I agree that 120 different language-links are not the way to go.
Wikipedia offers it's own tables to come from any language to any
other language for the same article, so one link in OSM should be
sufficient.

cheers,
Martin
