LEAD redux[edit]

About this, the lead has been discussed several times here:

Removing the entire section was somewhat... extreme, so I have restored it. We can certainly discuss this more. Jytdog (talk) 14:51, 24 July 2018 (UTC) (added last bullet per note below Jytdog (talk) 16:22, 24 July 2018 (UTC))

btw, the section on LEAD was first added by me, in this diff. This arose from the WMF reading team reacting to cluttered first sentences by grabbing the "description" field from Wikidata and adding that as the first line of en-WP articles in mobile views and the apps (they use the Wikidata description field a bunch of other places too, like navigation in all versions of WP). The discussions over that led to this discussion at FAC. The original LEAD section here reflected that and was discussed at Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Medicine/Archive_100#Change_to_each_of_MEDMOS_and_PHARMMOS_re_leads.
