I could see this being applied to authoritative authors of an industry.
Indeed - good stuff. I would say that type of use is sort of the next baby step extension. Something that improves search as it exists now. As the data sets get bigger and the algorithm better, I can imagine all sorts of uses.
Ultimately, mapping relationships will go way beyond documents on the web and will be the underlying technology that will make Glasses actually useful - understanding that Hi Tech and Chipotle are both restaurants, they both serve burritos, and based on GPS or even image recognition of the street signs you just passed, one is closer to where you are now.
Even that is still a simple use case though. Long term, I imagine being able to find relationships that I could not find manually because the data sets are too big, the connections too many hops, the data not structured enough. At that point, things get really interesting.
