What implications will this have for Wikidata? As far as I can tell, this does not seem to be a priori compatible with Wikidata's existing data model. I specifically would like assurance that the adoption of this will not be to the detriment of Wikidata usage.

@Jasper Deng Tabular data and Wikidata pursue very different goals -- Wikidata is a FACTS database. You can store the height of Everest, but you cannot store daily weather on Everest for the past several years. While those are also "facts", storing them on Wikidata is not a good idea. In short, these two techs compliment each other, and Wikidata team plans to have much better datasets support going forward.
