What if the creator is none of these? For example, a non notable individual who puts images on their own website, with a CC licence?
Has anyone considered the alternative of having a "creator type" property, qualified by one of the three kinds of ID discussed above?

It would be handy if an item's URL - e.g. https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q123 - could also be parsed.

This seems to have been done without the consensus of the editing (and image uploading) community. Please restore the import of time from EXIF, ASAP. Even if it is wrong, such data is useful for sequencing sets of images correctly, where image names do not facilitate this (perhaps Task T109589 is related?) It has always been editable.

How would "throttleoveride" be of use to event organisers, trainers, Wikimedians in Residence, etc, who are not sysops?

This would be very useful; and in training sessions run in-house by Wikimedians in Residence, too. I've had a lot of valuable training-time wasted dealing with the issues described.
