So many identifiers are not URLs. They can be related to URLs (as DOIs) but they are not URLs themselves.

I would be reluctant to have VIAF be "the" person identifier.

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

"The itemid attribute, if specified, must have a value that is a valid URL potentially surrounded by spaces."


So that would be 'no', not according to spec.

I've often wondered whether the schema.org 'url' property is meant to be synonymous with itemid. I'm not sure what happens in schema.org interpreters when you specify one/other/both/multiple urls...
