Wiki pages are relatively well watched (warning: I am biased here,
as I am one of people quite active in that field).

Data items are not, as watchlisting them is dysfunctional (no way to skip
translations that given person cannot review, no way of grouping edits, 
standard edit
leave no description of edit and so on)

> 2. Lack of synchronization between the Data items and their Wiki pages.
This sort of works and is causing issues due to lack of control in Data Items

I am dubious is it useful or going to happen, but it is up to JOSM developers

And note, that even if data items interface would be very easy - you still need
wiki pages for freeform description/comments

I am dubious whatever authors of editors would abandon maintaining presets and 
switch to
simply pulling from Data Items

Note that, for example, JOSM and iD are using icons in different styles.
