Many thanks for your clarifying reply. I just thought it a bit 
strange that these kinds of arguments (including bad language in 
a mail communication) were/are coming from a certain direction. 
No offense intended from my part.

Your idea of the extended use of Wikidata is also discussed in 
the svwp community, and there are some obvious possibilites. 
Right now we are getting accostumed to the new way of interwiki 
linking, where often (through the proportionate weight of enwp) 
the specific English definition of words and concepts are taken 
for granted.

Best of wikiwishes,
