I have to imagine that the reason why is that
Wikivoyage is the closest project
to Wikipedia out of all of the sister projects in many important ways. Yes,
their page organization system is a little bit different, but not as different
as say Wikisource, but perhaps more importantly, the kind of information that
they would want as structured data is closest to the kind of information at
Wikipedia wants in structured data. It is a safe choince and means less
developer time has to be spent on bringing in the new project, so more developer
time can be kept on Wikidata development itself.
Yes, the structural similarity to Wikipedia is indeed an important reason for
going for Wikivoyage first.
