I'm all for the proposed change.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but this is what I understand:
- https://www.wikidata.org/entity/Q36661 is what we call a canonical concept URI. This is supposed to be called without a file extension, and supposed to do content negotiation.
- Special:EntityData is supposed to be called with a file extension. We want this to be cacheable. The fact that the same special page also does content negotiation is a technical detail, because the code doing this must be somewhere.
This means https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:EntityData/Q36661 is a technical detail that could as well be hidden.
What am I missing? What could be the worst negative effect this change may have?
