If -in your own words- everyone knows that Paris is the capital of France,
then there is not real need for the datum on the Wiki's article and we
could save bites whereas improving the enciclopedia (best
useful-information noise ratio ;-).

Maybe the problem was in the starting point, i.e. your statement everyone
knows that Paris is the capital of France. The fact no everyone knows is
that is doing the Wiki information valuable and therefore -if it was not
clear- i wait no editing of the Wiki from your part.
