Yes. Congratulations for this feat and sorry for using your announcement to
raise more general questions :-)

My current use case is search and with many classes, chances should be higher
that a search term matches a class and reasoning can be used to draw more
matches. I am still not sure if chances would be significantly higher. Your 
statements suggests that there may not be a "long tail" here.
