Note that much of this kind of information is
from Wikipedia by DBpedia and Freebase so most of the issues involved

already provides the core of a knowledge base that people use to work
with this sort of data.
The nice thing is that if it works through microformats, a lot of the
Wikipedias' templates already do those. Software massaging may still
be needed to make it glitch-free. But having an actual (rather than
hypothetical) consumer for the data is a very nice incentive to get it
all in order.
