There will be - VIAF. We're working with OCLC, IFRRO, CISAC, British Library, Bibliotheque Nationale, and several other organizations - the data itself is housed in VIAF and is publicly available.

I'll have a look at the links you provided - thank you so much!

I just realized this as I tried to insert the ISNI into this entry.

itemid="0000 0001 2103 2683", but there needs to be a way to refer that
number back to the identifier scheme that says "this is an ISNI"

Hopefully someday there will be URLs for each ISNI. But until then, if
ISNIs are important to you (which I imagine they are given your Bowker
address) I'd probably look into registering [2] a URN namespace so you
could use itemid="urn:isni:0000000121032683". If you need help doing
this I would be interested. The IETF URN discussion list [3] would be
a good place to coordinate it.
