Does that mean that the original plan of "fetching" (dare I say
importing) 200k Wikidata links through automated connections from
existing Wikipedia links is (a) dangerous because you can easily obtain
a reference to something totally different, or (b) no problem because it
is *to be expected* that an object's Wikipedia and Wikidata links point
to different things an hence the import wouldn't introduce "errors" per se?
