[kde-edu]: Synergy with Wikipedia/Wikionary?

Hi there,

there are quite a few educational applications for learning languages 
(just naming klatin, kverbos, kvoctrain) that depend on dictionaries. 
Furthermore, we have kdict that can use online dictionaries like LEO.

This reminds me to two things:

1. Wikipedia (represented by Jimbo Wales) announced a cooperation with 
KDE during last Linuxtag at Karlsruhe.

2. Wikipedia's sister project, Wikionary, collects entries that could be 
used by the above mentioned applications. 

To draw the maximum benefit out of it (from a educational perspective), 
it might be good to tag all entries according to some level (basic 
vocabulary, advanced, specific) or by usage (hits of some web engine).

Any comments on this idea? Is it worth to file a bug report against all 
those? Or is it better to suggest some API to Wikionary?
