Thanks, this is interesting work. I hope OCLC also considers providing
associated titles as identifying information. I'd be less confident
identifying Michael Jackson by "Rock musician" in a list of Michael
Jacksons than by "Thriller."  And title associations are something we have
almost universally for the names we care about.
