        Thanks for the site reference, but not really my area of
interest.    (03)

1) hand-crafted -> someone has to understand the meaning of pair of
items to decide whether they mean the same thing. After that there are
tools like EXPRESS-X compilers or pattern translators to go from one
data structure/source to another.    (04)

2) My interest not personal data on web sites, but heavyweight
industrial applications where reliability is important. Where data
standards run to the thousands of pages, and exchanges of millions of
items run for tens of years. We cannot afford to shut a factory down for
a couple of hours to rebuild a database because someone saw two entities
had the same name.    (05)
