You raise an important point. I've commented before, years back in the mean time, on the push to move information out of OSM in to a third party product over which have no control and which, if we are not careful, could impact the value of what we in OSM are doing and distributing (just see MBs use of wikidata in lieu of OSM place names). It would further be very naive to not see the competitive angle of what is happening here.
On the other hand lots of the wikidata related additions would seem to be fairly neutral (WD references additionally to WP links and so on).
