With Mr Styrov added as someone who died in 2014, we are closer to the point where Wikidata knows all the people. When we are, we can make a report that will signal the latest people who are known to have died in the last year.
This can be of interest to people who want to know things like:
- Do we know that this person who has an article on our Wikipedia has died
- Fellow country men who died and do not have an article on our Wikipedia
- What person are notable enough to have an article on our Wikipedia
When such reports become available, the data in Wikidata gains a purpose. Some may see it as getting Wikipedia to use the data by the back door, but isn't it there to be used?
