For example Wikidata:Property_proposal/J-GLOBAL_ID contains multiple different types of entries using the same ID scheme. Microsoft Academic now uses a new URL scheme (though the old one still works currently); if the old scheme no longer work we will be able to migrate data to new properties easily using this qualifier.

Questions: Should we create new items dedicated to the external types? GZWDer (talk) 10:23, 27 December 2019 (UTC)
