Regarding bug no 52135, I would like to propose to create easier way to add
references. Reference templates such as citation from book or article are one
of the basic pillars of Wikipedia. One may argue, that also infoboxes are used
pretty often, but infoboxes inclued repeated structure information, which might
be once operated by Wikidata, while references are crucial to the basices of
Wikipedia. The actuall system, when the newbie is somehow able to load proper
template to reference dialog box and then should add in unknown parameters is
for not just newbies unusefull.
