The list are used by the WLM and a requirement for actually doing it but 
these lists shouldn't be part of the project. Most Wikipedia's have the 
lists in the main namespace because WLM will pass, but the lists will 
stay and will be expanded and improved over time. You should consider 
doing the same at your Wikipedia.

Coordinates is not clear to me. At the moment coordinates seem to be 
missing for most items? Why do you have the additional field?

What would be the translation of this field?

I added it to the database. The result is 4775 items, full statistics at
