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?

If the Wikidata ID can be fetched automatically based on the Wikipedia
tag, can we delete the Wikipedia tags from everything that has Wikidata
afterwards because it is redundant?
