Perhaps a toggle button could provide an easy "switch" between querying a single wikibase instance or federated instances. This doesn't even need to be a button, but some form of visual cue that prompts/reminds users where they are executing the query (change in colour on the top nav bar, etc).

Thanks for your suggestion. To consider your needs in future developments, it would be helpful to get some more context in the ticket. My understanding is, that sometimes you want to query a single instance, sometimes the ingle instance including federated instances. Could you give an example for these two situations?
