Totally agree. I think when you get into all the top traffic sites using it it's then an authority signal (just kind of a vague term and trying to define it).I'd venture to say that schema markup IS an authority signal.
I have seen crappy MFA sites make it into the knowledge graph, specifically in the hummingbird style q&a boxes, with few links, mostly spam.
At the same time, they were the only site fully dedicated to the topic
Actually, wouldn't be too hard or a bad idea to get the Alexa of top sites and do a quick scrape on all of them for any schema markup to see if they have it or not for a mini white paper. I'll see if I can whip that together today or this weekend.
