Ah okay. Well, am very happy to try this approach. :)  And perhaps the
goal is less about consistency but that we capture the 'usual' number
associated with an entity? This would allow us to have the flexibility

To be clear, I don't have any of the answers here — indeed, the point
of this stage is to experiment to work out what might fit best.
