James and Wikidatans,
Good question, and as a follow on question, how are templates (in
MediaWiki, I presume) in conjunction with qLabel (
likely to access Commons Wikibase ?

I could image Commons Wikibase sharing the same Properties (Pxxx) but
having its own items -- perhaps starting C (Cnnnn).
Such a structure would make it easy to prototype templates using items on
Wikidata while Commons Wikibase was being developed, just changing the
relevant Q-numbers to C-numbers to port from accessing an item defined on
Wikidata to one defined on Commons Wikibase.
Properties on C-numbers could point to Q-numbers; but (with very rare
exceptions) properties on Q-numbers would not point to C-numbers.
Is that likely to be how things will be set up?
