What if we could include more information into Hovercards depending on whether we're displaying an article referring to a person, an event, a movie, a TV show, etc.? Basically, we could include extra information in Hovercards depending on the category of the article. The best example I can give is for people's date of birth and death, which is removed in the Hovercard preview because it's usually contained inside parenthesis. Check the following examples I've created to see how this could be implemented.

Depending on the category? We have Wikidata now!

Until we have cached Wikidata queries it will likely not be possible to include Wikidata information on the hovercard but this work is planned in the future.

@ovasileva @Nirzar please comment on whether we'd like to do this in the future or plan to decline. I've bumped the priority for now under the assumption we want to do this, but it's ultimately at the discretion of you two (it would probably need a new design too).

@jhobs this is a good idea but requires a lot more product and design work. should be stalled for now. but we can reopen for Page Previews V2 cc @ovasileva

@jhobs - I think it's a good idea for a future implementation, but not for right now. Bumping the priority back down until we do hovercards version 2

Sounds like a neat idea but will need some design input.
