XML, RDF, OWL, etc. are all human interpretations of trying to break down data representation in such a way that they mimic what the brain can do, in a highly simplified manner, in hopes of allowing machines to perform the basic work that a brain can.

Flying birds gave humans an existence proof that flight was possible.  However, attempts  were unsuccessful to build flying machines that worked the way birds do.  Eventually we achieved flight by understanding aerodynamics and propulsion well enough to build machines that worked, even though the mechanism was quite different from that used by birds.  Similar remarks apply to cameras, and to information processing systems.
