Thanks for the overview Matthew. There are some egregious examples of overfolding here, certainly (the service is a beta and we're addressing this actively). I agree that crosswalks are of use only if the fold is unequivocal.

Matching entities to pages is infrequently a one-to-one resolution, as you note. This is one reason we provide two types of third-party pointers: crosswalks (canonical, single-entity endpoints), and cross-references (unqualified references to the entity that often contain others).

Here's to normalizing,

Factual Director of Product
