Thank you very much for all your comments.
If you let me write a personal reflection, I think we need to integrate
good ideas concerning UX (reasonators and any other external tool) as a
part of the software before it's too late. On Wikipedia, I fear that
it's already too late, so late that I'm seeing hard to improve the (old,
ugly) current skin by default, Vector, even when we had a better idea of
design, Winter. The obsolete interface of Wikipedia has become the
unmistakable identity of the project (even appearing on cinema, parody,
theater or The Simpsons), most people know how to use it, and the
results of an abrupt replacement are completely unexpected. But Wikidata
hasn't got such an impact yet, it's younger and more flexible, and we
can still significantly improve its interface making a mistake when
(I would also encourage to include any kind of external tools, not only
related to the appearance, as a part of the MediaWiki software... but
that wouldn't be related to this thread.) ;-)

I think that most elements on Wikidata are nowadays too long to be
easily read by humans. There are many properties (which is great), the
information is too scattered, and this problem (if you consider it a
problem) will continue growing up.
Some suggestions come to mind...
* Visually group properties by type, using the division of
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Property_proposal>, or another.
* Change our current CSS rules to show properties in a more
* Create a table of contents that automatically appears when more than N
properties have been defined for an element.
* Combine some of the above.
Is there something discussed/planned facing this issue?
Yes this is a problem I already identified. We've worked on it as well
already. As a first step we improved the loading time of large items. As
the next step we have moved identifiers into their own section. This
already helped a lot by removing identifiers from the rest of the
statements where they were mostly clutter. We have also made a few small
UI tweaks to improve the spacing. The next step is going to be ordering
of statements. For that we have to do some groundwork and then community
input. I hope we can start with that in the next 2 months.
To summarize: Being worked on but it is an on-going task that will be
with Wikidata for a long time as it grows.
