Oh, if you know the VIAF URL you could do this:

<div itemscope itemtype ="http://schema.org/Book">
  <span itemid="http://viaf.org/viaf/96994048/" itemprop="author"
itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">
    <span itemprop="name">Shakespeare, William</span>
  </span>
</div>

It would be interesting to know if the HTML spec allowed multiple
identifiers, similar to how other HTML attributes work:

<div itemscope itemtype ="http://schema.org/Book">
  <span itemid="http://viaf.org/viaf/96994048/
urn:isni:0000000121032683" itemprop="author" itemscope
itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">
    <span itemprop="name">Shakespeare, William</span>
  </span>
</div>
