It's also worth remembering that this applies to library classification 
and authority schemes as well. For example, the coverage of football, 
hockey and other popular sports approaches zero, unless there's someone 
with a book-length autobiography.

In the work being done to map VIAF to en.wikipedia, the most common 
class of error was matching a sports person in en.wikipedia to a 
non-sports person in VIAF:
