That is not what I'm saying. The point was that there are various
senses (I gave 6 broad examples, but that wasn't an attempt to be
complete) in which search engines can use this stuff, not all of which
we'll explicitly itemize. And that it is unrealistic to expect all the
specific details of search engine usage to be published on this
mailing list - if they're published it'll be on the various company
sites (or research papers etc.).

In the case of Google we are on the record e.g. in
https://research.googleblog.com/2015/12/four-years-of-schemaorg-recent-progress.html
-> https://research.google.com/pubs/pub43796.html ->
https://static.googleusercontent.com/media/research.google.com/en//pubs/archive/43796.pdf
... as using schema markup as background knowledge. But we aren't
necessarily going to explicitly list everything we use schema.org
markup for.
