[Wiki Loves Monuments] Moving monuments database to Wikidata

OK I am now looking at your Q number Q5642705 and I see that it is a hall,
so I expect it to be an instance of hall, but it's not and it's an instance
of architectural structure. This item has an enwiki Wikipedia article and
when I click what links here I see the WLM list here:
Here I see only 4 columns - name, grade, date and architect

An item that is also a hall in NL is a water board building called a
gemeenlandshuis. Here is an example item
This is an instance of gemeenlandshuis which in turn is a subclass of hall.

On the Dutch Wikipedia when I click what links here I see the link to the
WLM list here:
This list has eight columns - name, original function, date, architect,
location, coordinates, WLM ID, photo

The column headings should be coming from the monuments database, and the
original function should be the reason the object made it into the WLM list.

I think both of these items should be part of a corresponding list on
Wikidata. When I click what links here on Wikidata I see nothing that takes
me to WLM. The only clue is the property P1435 for the British Q and
property P359 for the Dutch Q.

Maybe we should augment the corresponding list items with their members so
that when you click what links here you are taken to the Q number of of the
list item? This effectively migrates the lists to Wikidata
