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
