But i don't think there is anything wrong with how wikidata represents 
things - for Hamburg wikidata for example has a single item:


which represents both the administrative unit and the populated place - 
which is perfectly fine.  And OSM does differentiate between them which 
is also fine.

Why should i attempt to change their data model to be identical to that 
of OSM (which would be a hopeless endeavor anyway because how things 
are represented in OSM is constantly changing)?
