IMHO the files should both have the relevant identifier and be in the
If I came to the description page (eg. by Special:Search), I wouldn't
know it was a monument without having to visit all its categories, which
is impractical.

Argh. So you basically made a new division inside the template
parameter. I can compensate that in the code. I had no idea you were
doing that.

Although there are multiple formats used:
A-1834 z 11.08.2008
916 z 09.11.1984
1101/92 z 14.04.1992
A/3102/78 i 79
A.734 z 24.05.1993
1598-A z 23.11.1995

What is the identifier that should be extracted?
