The above are clearly candidate for clean-ups (the last one is your
making I already killed in this thread, isn't it?).

These are false matches, I think.

I am not sure about these "A, e.g. B, C::" entries.  I tend to think
that they are all logically a single entry, that happen to have
commas in their entry heading, and fall into the same "false
matches" category as above.
