I have been looking for some means of multiplying opinions by the level of
information in the opinion holder.  We have an informal way of doing that
now: we find subject matter experts.  But we don't have a way to rigorously
scale the value of an opinion, or map how an opinion might be influenced by
external factors, such as religious or political views.  The canonizer might
do something like that, or have the capacity to be expanded in that way.
