[Crm-sig] Issue 230 Co-reference

Whoever collects co-references: The number of co-reference links 
explodes n*(n-1) with the number of references to the reference object. 
Imagine co-reference links between all books citing the bible. This is 
likely to result in a high error-rate, especially in manual curation.

Workaround: Use simple references to an "unknown/potential reference 
object" and put a probability on those links => scales with n.
