As a work-free option (or at least _relatively_ work-free) one could 
instead split the article, putting the trivia into a dedicated article 
where it would be the main subject rather than just side trivia. 
Granted, this does require some mental effort in coming up with a 
reasonable subject for the new article - I doubt [[trivia about foo]] 
would last long. But I recently did this with [[Stargate SG-1]] when the 
trivia section started to become overwhelming, I split off [[list of 
Stargate SG-1 cast]] and the majority of the trivia section just 
coincidentally happened to be about casting so it went along with. :)
