I have added my viewpoint to the P190 Discussion page.

Great, thanks!

Are you seriously saying that a Talk Page (where many are 2 - 10 pages scrollable) is the culmination of a definition of a property in Wikidata ?

In theory, only the top box should be needed. In practice, since everything in the Wikimedia movement is a work in progress, the talk page are almost always worth reading, especially if you have doubts on how to use it.

​Good to know.  I will use it profusely from now on.

You expect folks to read 10 pages of Talk to fully understand the intent and how to use a Property in Wikidata ?

No, _I_ do not expect "folks" to read it. But I do expect people who want to improve the use of a property to read it before they setup their own definitions of that property.

​As I shall from now on, knowing its importance, or more to the point, where I can help with confusion.
