I think if you're having to specify another attribute in the wikipedia
tag then you're probably better off just sticking with <url> - a
separate tag would only be useful if it could generalise more than
just prepending http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ to the topic attribute.
If Wikipedia automatically redirected to the English version if a
translation wasn't available then it might be useful, but as far as I
can tell that's not the case.
