I'm not sure if this can be done by adding officewiki to 'wmgUseWikibaseClient' in IS or adding officewiki to the wikidataclient.dblists. Ping @hoo and @aude for their opinion.

Helpful for what?

Sometimes facts will be referenced (i.e. on the Travel pages, etc.).

I assumed doing this would be trivial, but if it is not, then feel free to close. :)

An extension needs to solve a current problem. It adds complexities in maintenance, especially for private wikis where there is a need to coordinate with someone having access (WMDE folks don't have for example). Please reopen this task if you see a problem you have nicely solved by the Wikidata client.
