It should be possible to set badges to go in the indicators list, likewise to set the geolocations to go there without having to set this in the wikitext for each and every article. These data lives in the item, and should not be managed in the wikitext.
That said; the badge is a property for the text, but setting the badge in the text would be a self-description. It is anyhow available from the repo and should be managed there.
A solution could be to make something like MediaWiki:Sidebar. Note that in this case it isn't something that can be reused for all pages, only a specific page.
