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.
