David, also keep in mind that this is one of the benefits of set-based
browsing. If I have a results set of twenty synonymous URIs representing
Microsoft, for someone researching Microsoft, such a list would be a
goldmine, because I can click razorbase -> Information and view all
information for all 20 versions of that one entity simultaneously. In fact,
when I get sparse results for an entity, I always click the razorbase ->
Information -> "Alternative Identities" (e.g. owl:sameAs) and also I look
under the reverse properties for the same, to pull any alias that I may not
be away of.
