Also JOSM core must demystify Wikidata tags

More info:

If an object already has a Wikidata ID, fetch (via API) and display the Wikidata label (and description?) in the user's preferred language (with fallback to English/ whatever is available?) link to the Wikidata item (e.g. for Q5642705, display "Hall of Memory, Birmingham" and link to )

Also, this should be core (if a user finds a Wikidata ID, it should be explained to them, always).

Thank you for your efforts; however, this is not fixed; nor is it a plugin issue.

When a user - an ordinary user, with no Wikipedia plugin installed - sees the tag "Wikidata:Q15771334", that is meaningless to them. The request is to fetch the human-friendly text label for that item, in the user's preferred language, and display that alongside the tag, for example as "Wikidata:Q15771334 (Odeon, Kingstanding)".

PS: I personally do not think that we need this implemented right now …

Actually I think is a WONTFIX. The plugin solves that issue. Maybe a note in JOSM could tell the user somehow that it would be a good idea to install the plugin (mouseover, ...).

If this is not default functionality in core, then the issue for which the ticket from which this was forked is not addressed.

Replying to stoecker:

Maybe a note in JOSM could tell the user somehow that it would be a good idea to install the plugin (mouseover, ...).

Sounds very nice. Maybe we could add a new entry in the plugin manifest that would list the tags for which a plugin provides extended functionality. Then when selecting/hovering a tag we could suggest somewhat to install this plugin.
