At this time the Reasonator has specific functionality for people,
organisms and places.there are many ways it can be improved. It can even
become a layer on top of Wikidata with proper caching and all the works
that make it perform for the world. Currently it runs on the toolserver..
The most important upgrade from my perspective is that it becomes easy to
add missing labels for existing statements in any and all languages.
Consider that only XX % of all the Wikidata items have a label in English.
I do like the idea of getting suggestions about what statements to add.
However, it starts with identifying something for what it is. That is
something we are not good at. At this stage over 50% of all our items have
no statements and consequently for these items this approach will not work.
The most potent additions from a Reasonator point of view is adding visual
things like signatures, flags, coat of arms, and COMMONS CATEGORIES.
Particularly the Commons categories are powerful because they already
provide you with search capabilities for images in "your" language. Yes,
there will be a big Wikidata-Commons project but this functionality we
So yes, the Reasonator code is GPL licensed. so go wild and do great things.

What I would like to see in it or in a gadget based on it :
* More models, useful for obvious reasons
* Edit capabilities : there is one or two messages on Wikidata starting to
ask "what property should I use", I personnaly would very happy to answer
them "install the reasonator gadget and see what it suggests to you for
this kind of items !" with a good chance it actually helps.
