I thought wikidata tags were for unique objets, which usage I believe
is welcome... If they are applied to categories then it is something
else entirely.

I would agree that the matching of a generic Openstreetmap tag to a
Wikidata identifier is Wikidata's business... But then maybe a
Wikidata-centric view of the model will consider it is Openstreetmap's
