At first it seemed to me a bit radical, but the more I think about it
the more I like the idea. It would give a boost to the Wikidata project.
It would make people to pay more attention to the Wikidata items.
Wikidata items require a lot of work too, - translations of a title, of
a description, adding a category, an image, a location, etc.
In the end it would benefit the Wikipedias too, as having comprehensive
Wikidata items, the pages in different languages could be created
automatically or semi-automatically.
The situation is similar to the USB connector issue, - shall we change
radically to the new USB-C horizontally symmetrical reversible
connector, or continue to waste billions of hours of work time
connecting the old USB with three orientation attempts?
