having a redirect that could become an article 
Because it it is difficult to add a link to redirects from Wikidata, when 
someone turns ones like this into an article there is a high chance of 
duplicate items being made.

happened to have an article about the planet, I could easily find that it did 
and read that instead.

  Note that this requires action on the Wikipedia side, not the Wikidata side. 
Maybe if this was implemented somewhere and the community actually started 
using it, we could have a more useful discussion about this.
