The new datatype for linking to geoshapes on Wikimedia Commons is ready. We should enable it on Wikidata so people can actually make use of it.

To make this really useful, it would be valuable for a WDQS query to be able to display such shapes in the map view of query results.
(And, also, to be able to display shapes obtained from external sources, such as OpenStreetMap or UK Ordnance Survey, which it would be useful to be able to display with suitable attribution text, but which we may not be able to include directly on Commons because of e.g. attribution clauses in their licences.)
How far are we from WDQS being able to support this? There doesn't seem to be a WDQS-specific ticket open.
