As Ed was also pointing out that they need to agree upon the ontology they are using.
Few points that I can comprehend from your reply :
RDF creates a standard way for the process to happen.
What if people across the whole world start using a standard way of doing this which can be enhancing from time to time ?
I do understand that the tags etc.. in RDF enables us to represent the info in more natural terms. But what is it semantic w.r.t computers/systems ?
For example, to describe an item the thing that differs from a normal XML to RDF is that I add "rdf:about" to that item and give a resource for the same. That resource itself is another URL or URI in terms of W3C. So, even the systems just know that you are describing about some entity (the above resource) if at all there exists a rule in the program which says that "rdf:about" means description etc.
For that, I can have an attribute "about" in XML itself and have the above resource as its value and let machines process it.
So, I can plug-in my program above also except that my rule changes from "rdf:about" to just "about" in XML.
I read it somewhere that "semantics" w.r.t systems is that they should be able to process our information.
And also as Rich was also saying that SW is just one way of doing this
May be, I should ask first that "what does semantics mean w.r.t computers" and what is the goal of semantic applications with a neat example. Along with that I would also like to read about any references for the same.
