G'day

This story raises an interesting question
http://www.sciencealert.com/turns-out-australia-isn-t-where-you-think-it-is

In short the GPS location of Australia is about to be adjusted 1.5m or
about 5feet I know its not as significant as the change of 1994 when it was
adjusted 200m.  This shift that will alter all the GPS data held in
Wikidata and alter the positioning of media files which have been
 geolocated.

The question is are there any plans to bulk update all of this information,
or will it rely on individual changes to be made to each piece of data.  As
a secondary question do we even change the location of media files as that
data is accurate to when the media was created.
