    Not that this is a global answer to "automated fixing", but there's 
the tag "not:brand:wikidata" recognized by some of these automated 
fixers to prevent suggesting more automatic fixes.  Some of these POIs 
attract manual fixing as well and the not: prefix can help with that, 
since I don't know much work it takes to spot a note.
