A short reaction; I'm bit hesitant. To me, tag wikis are short pointers to describe how tags should be used, and not a full introduction to a subject. For that we have textbooks, reviews, Wikipedia and other websites. While links or single refs in tag wikis might serve a purpose in very specific cases I see them as overkill and unnecessary clutter in general....

Given the careful feedback of @fileunderwater I wish to share my conclusion here that links to sources in tag descriptions and wikis should be considered as optional, and not as a mandatory component. Again, and perhaps personally, I am a big supporter of mentioning sources, but I agree with fileunderwater that it may be a bit of an overkill in some cases....
