"Name" would be a bit tricky since I'm not sure if we have property
called "name" but for something like date of birth wouldn't it be useful
to link it in the template to
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Property:P569 somehow? Is there such
With identifying properties, however - such as name - I'm not sure if
this could be used.

Well, in dbpedia it says name is foaf:name, but this could only be
appropriate for humans (and maybe only in specific contexts), for other
entities "name" may have completely different semantics. In Wikidata,
however, properties are generic, so I wonder if it would be possible to
keep context. dbPedia obviously does have context but not sure where it
would be in Wikidata.
