When Wikipedia has an approach to specific articles that are not compatible
with Wikidata, we can create items that fit our need and keep the original
item for what it is .. for instance a list of people (in the case of the
Wright brothers).

The notion that Wikidata defers to Wikipedia is not one can keep because
there are bound to be Wikipedias who differ in their approach and have an
article for both Wilbur and Orville Wright..

Yes, it is good to have a hope for algorithms in the future, in the mean
time consider what percentage is wrong and that quite often not having data
is more damaging than having data that can be manipulated with queries,
tools. No data is no grip at all. We do have queries in WDQ/Autolist and we
have tools in ToolScript and pywikipedia.

IMHO the most important thing we should do to get better quality is report
on differences. This helps all projects involved in an import / export /
