It is of limited value (as Gerard explained) to do major work on
Wiktionary. Wiktionary articles could be transferred to the structured data
in the similar way like Wikipedia articles, with a lot of trouble. Thus not
the most optimal solution.

What makes sense is to incorporate OmegaWiki logic into Wikidata and create
formal multilingual dictionary (vs. Wiktionary as philological dictionary).
