TODO: I still need to visualize:

  • Only show one value in each allowed combinations cell
  • Link types with no role
  • Any vs. All requirements within a role group
  • Normalize the link_category_affinities table
  • Affinities for types only used in the Other Sites list

Note: Eligible links types must satisfy two constraints:

  1. URLs must be stable over time (eg. not eBay)
  2. URLs must be valid for customers worldwide (eg. not Amazon, Hulu, or BBC iPlayer)
