It is not bad. But it is centered on two data bases - the Wikidata and 
the OSM. What if in the future there will be more open data sources 
readily available?

Say, a query to listen to an audio-book or listen to music written in a 
certain city, view vacancies, see paintings from museums in a region, 
aerial images of an area, etc.

If synergy, the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum 
of its parts, is possible for two parts, then it may be possible for 
more parts too.
