We spoke about that briefly in the Office hours:
one of the main thing Wikidata could do, I think,
is to centralize cross-wiki links, the very same way it centralized
I don't know how difficult could it be, but I sense this would be a
breakthrough for all sister projects.
We could review the Sister template, and make cross-wiki navigation much
more easy and useful.

There is, for example, the suggestion to adopt OmegaWiki, which could
potentially complicate a Wikibase-Solution in the future (but then again,
structured data is often rather easy to transform):
There is this grant proposal for elaborating the future of Wiktionary,
which I consider a potentially smarter first step:
That's Wikisource. :)
There's this discussion on Wikdiata itself:

Personally, I regard Wiktionary as the third priority, following Wikipedia
and Commons. A lot of the other projects -- like Wikivoyage or Wikisource
-- can be served with only small changes to Wikidata as it is, but both
Commons and Wiktionary would require a bit of thought (and here again,
Commons much less than Wiktionary).
Actually Wikiquote and Wikivoyage use interwikis exactly like Wikipedia;
Commons in the same way except it's interproject; Wiktionary in the same
way except it's case-sensitive and not about concepts (opr about a stricter
definition of concept); Wikisource in a completely different way;
Wikibooks, Wikinews and Wikiversity I'm not sure.
As for phase II, it's another story. Wikisource and Commons would benefit
a lot from it; for Wiktionary it could be a revolution; for Wikispecies
idem but with less effort (?); Wikiquote would become
I would appreciate a discussion with
the Wiktionary-Communities, and also to make them
more aware of the
OmegaWiki proposal, the potential of Wikidata for Wiktionary, etc. Just to
give a comparison: it took a few months to write the original Wikidata
proposal, and it was up for discussion for several months before it was
decided and acted upon. I would strongly advise to again choose slow and
careful planning over hastened decisions.
It's impossible to plan or discuss anything without knowing what matters.
