If one was to add a tag for specifically wikipedia links then one may
as well add one for specifically google, slashdot, sourceforge, etc.
links too.
Imagine trying to find all the URI links in a document when every
domain has it's own tag.

This would also mean more work on the DTD and XSL while offering no
real benefits in terms of the explicitness of the markup.
Just so you can avoid some quick cut and pastes.

the addition of a <wikipedia> tag would be useful?
