If it is the bot will then find the list of links that are included along side it on wikidata and remove those from the article.

Attention for what? Anyway, seems useful to get a few bots running on this already. I am not sure what sort of snafus could arise, if any. - (talk) 15:14, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
A trial would be nice :) ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 15:15, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Approved for trial (50 edits). Please provide a link to the relevant contributions and/or diffs when the trial is complete. I'll trial this, but since I proposed a variation of the implementation, I'll leave approval to someone else. MBisanz talk 17:42, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Trial complete., please see these edits. I have added a log page for the bot which detects interwikis not currently on wikidata. After approval on EN I will also create a Wikidata bot to add any interwikis not already there. ·Add§hore·Talk To Me! 14:46, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
