Allow me to introduce you to the oldest report that

Bug 2340 - Support for OS grid refs for maps of UK and
I have no idea about the topic itself, but maybe
someone in this list
can follow up there, and remove such honor from that report. :)
There are two aspects to this bug:
a) Geographical coordinates should be resolved internally,
without GeoHack (sic!).
b) Treat OS grid coordinates as first-class citizens.
For the first use case, there is Extension:MapSources (not
to be confused with my Extension:Mapsources :-)) for the
presentational side which has been deployed to the Wikivoy-
ages, and Extension:GeoData for a database backend.
I don't know if someone is eager to open Pandora's box and
promise support for the various other coordinate formats.
