Hoi, When it is appropriate to mention Wikidata, I will mention Wikidata. The other side of the coin is that not every thread in this list needs to be about Wikipedia or used as a platform to promote it. In this instance technology was discussed where Wikidata may be of service. Consequently it is relevant and opportune to mention this.
A single editor in Commons can tweaks license information as much as it might be in Wikidata. Remember both Commons and Wikidata are wikis. It is likely that a property will be needed to reference an OTRS instance. Reasons why a file has issues will be as much be defined by properties and qualifiers. Really Fae, not much will change except that a Russian may view all this in Russian and a Brazilian in Portuguese. Effectively the number of people who will be able to understand what is expressed will increase. More people will be able to find media files... Remember, that IS the objective isn't it?
