It has been discussed a lot. There are ample ways of doing this. It is that it is not hard at all to compare sources. It starts with sharing identifiers and then comparing values that could be / should be the same. We can then report differences and work on quality. When Wikidata has no data, we could import it and identify the source..

It is feasible, experiments were done. There has been only apathy.

It is great that WikiData provides a way for data to be curated in a crowd-sourced way.
It would be even better if changes (especially corrections) could be communicated back to the original source so that all could benefit.

Has this been discussed previously? Considered?
