Also HQ should not be linked to Wikipedia article describing company.

HQ object may be linked using wikipedia (and optionally also wikidata)
only if there is article specifically about the HQ building.

I am not sure about is using "instance of" data from Wikidata limited by 
copyright issues. Blacklist of very popular values may be a good idea,
though personally I think that automatic edit fixing this would be preferable
(it is on my TODO list, but I expect that I will not start working on it before 2021).

wikipedia:type=en:Tree on natural=tree would make the same sense.

Note that wikipedia:type would invite wikipedia:type=en:Tree on natural=tree
or wikipedia:type=en:Road on every single road.
