If the data on a topic's types/properties is edited by a user, the wikipedia
infobox import process will not process for those types/properties as it is
presumed user edits have more value. We are investigating means
of programmatically inserting newer values from Wikipedia but cannot promise
any immediately resolution to this issue.
Note, this sounds like an excellent project for Google Refine to scrape WP
for the statistics post 2009 and reconcile against then update Freebase. ;)
