Just remember what was Mediawiki created for. Storing marked up text
pages. Mediawiki is good for encyclopedia but not for Wikitionary
and Wikidata purposes.
you are most probably correct. However, I feel that every different
need that can be discussed about Wikidata may lead to this
conclusion, but with different requirements. This is why I suggest to
uncouple the storing architecture (there might be several ones) from
the project and to make central its interchange protocol. In doing so
I suggest to refer to a NoSQL typical storing system as being by
essence the most complex context since it can be format independant.
Such a protocol is more complex than a simple JSON use. It should
support concepts such as structure characteristics, confidence
levels, IP protection, plagiary filtering, authority authentication,
encryption, langtags, mandatory information, locale files, time,
embargoes, acknowledgments, etc. Possibly we may want to specify
datawiki agents for the capture of the data (DWA), some of them could
be automated processes (e.g. weather observations, scientific
experiments reporting, stock exchanges, etc.)
