Hi,

That's great to hear that there are no big objections. That's a very good point, of dealing with cases where there are hundreds or more different properties. The best solution for that case is probably to have Special:Ask switch over automatically to use remote autocompletion when there are more than a pre-defined number of properties, like 300 (and really, Semantic Forms should probably be doing the same thing...). That shouldn't be hard to add in to the code.
