In addition to the list of present qualifiers I will add the in work (P2553) because it's necessary when P742 is used to show pen name (Q127843). See an example of real situation in the journalist Eugeni Xammar (Q1373218), who wrote with different names in different media. If there is no arguments against, I'll assume it's OK.
