Deleting a page that's on a deletion list gives a warning that other pages link to it

Description

I chose to delete Q43024662. When I click on the deletion action I get shown:
"Warning: Other pages link to or transclude the page you are about to delete."

When I click on the list it shows:
Wikidata:Requests for deletions ‎ (← links | edit)
Wikidata:Requests for deletions/All ‎ (← links | edit)
User:MisterSynergy/sysop/empty items ‎ (← links | edit)

Those three aren't reasons to warn me and a lot of deletion candidates show up on those links. The fact that the lists trigger the warning creates a lot of false alarms and thus it encourages admins to simply ignore the warning.

It would be good to have a list of websites that get ignored for the purposes of the deletion warning.
