Support Topic Equivalent weblink schema for applications at the database level

description

I would like to see a Topic Equivalent support for WebLinks at the database level. Allowing Content Authors and Curators to say SAMEAS essentially. And be able to populate a database with existing content from Freebase, WikiData, DBPedia, etc... fairly easily.
 
For example seeing the Han Dynasty range under the timeline, the entity has additional SAMEAS weblinks that can be exposed to allow linked data for more metadata.

and

The idea of a TopicEquivalent or SAMEAS link should ideally be available within Data Extensions and perhaps needed for all 3
  1. Timeline
  2. Exhibit
  3. ContentItem
or perhaps
  1. Reference can hold the proposed TopicEquivalent property and it can be reused on the 3 above ? dunno your gameplan...
