Is there any real-world data when catalogue details are wrong?
(Not: wrong as in not available. But: Wrong as in Available but
Why is the bonus just +1.5 and not more?

Tonight, I had a CTAN work dinner and we had exactly that
discussion. I'm on record (there have been witnesses :-) to make
the bold statement "Robin is just too good. The catalogue meta-data
concerning available documentation can be relied upon. In practice,
it doesn't produce false positives." Am I wrong?
