Personally I see several challenges but also opportunities for WLM.
Technically this is a "change" to be managed. If it is managed in a
right manner, it could open a new season for WLM.
As I know the data of monuments are not homogeneous and this is a risk
for migrating data to a dedicated repository to Wikidata.
It has been a problem for the first WLM contests too.
IMHO the time is short, and I see as a dream the possibility to run an
international contest AND to manage the import in WIkidata.
