Yep, that would be a good idea. 
The Watson interface provides a simplistic way to navigate into the entities 
the search engine has collected (see e.g. http://tinyurl.com/65dtej).
Would be quite straightforward to use the Watson API to make that possible 
in more sophisticated SW browsers.

I can't remember why we haven't done that already...

Cheers, 
Mathieu.
